NO RATING Hmm where do I begin Believe it or not I AM a cautious reviewer I do not wish to offend dismiss nor ignore Mrs Harrison or any authors feelings for that matter We are all human beings and words can be universally hurtful stepping down from my soap box With that being said I am going to try and state my opinions the best way I can without channeling my inner assholeHere goes While I commend Mrs Harrison s bravery in sharing such a difficult time in her life her memoir left me confused and struggling to characterize her as a victim Why the uncertainty Great uestion As it just so happens I highlighted the passages that puzzled meExhibit A In years to come I won t be able to remember even one instance of our lying together I ll have a composite generic memory I ll know that he was always on top and that I always lay still as still as if I had in truth fallen from a great height I ll remember such details as the color of the carpet in a particular motel room or the kind of tree outside the window That he always wore his socks and that I wore whatever I could I ll remember every tiny thing about him I will be able to close my eyes and see the pattern of hair that grew on the backs of his hands the mole on his cheek the lines each one of them at the corners of his eyes This sounds like photographic memory rather than generic Exhibit BBut I won t be able to remember what it felt like won t or can t No matter how hard I try pushing myself to inhabit my past I ll recoil from what will always seem impossible Asleep There s the cottony somnolence of my days There s the little trick of selective self anesthesia that leaves me awake to certain things and dead to others There are drugs and alcohol and there is food too much or too little with which to bludgeon the senses Over time I make use of each of these and perhaps others of which I am still not aware Sleep in response to unbearable desire I have learned this from my mother Now I m no expert on the human psyche nor have I suffered from selective self anesthesia but I ve been in denial once twice okay a few times and her admission mirrors my thoughts when I refuse to believe the truth Exhibit C I m frightened I want to avoid contemplating the enormity of what we re doing an act that defines me that explains who I am because in it is all the hurt and anger and hunger of my past and in it too is the future It s anger that frightens me most I sleep to escape my rage So those feelings she can remember in vivid detail but the feelings that accompany penetration have vanished completely And the peace de resistance sleep to escape my rag Not at him but at my mother To avoid owning a fury so destructive that I would take from her what brief love she has known because she has been so unwilling for so long to love me just a little The other object of my anger is myself AT HER MOTHER I don t give a flying fuck if her mother was an abusive crack whore which she wasn t The affair between Kathryn and Daddy Dearest started when she was 20 years old her mother did not instigate their affair in fact her mother suspects something is going on between her daughter and ex husband so she takes Kathryn to speak with a psychiatrist Oops one She gets to the point without preamble I think they re having sex she says The doctor turns to me his eyebrows raised and I lie as I have never lied before or since I m a bad liar generally but on this afternoon wearing what I m wearing I am brilliant It just looks bad I tell him I know why she s worriedBut it s just that I falter See I never knew my fatherI m going through a stage like all little girls just later than most I pause at exactly the right moments My performance is so good that I m frightened Is my personality so unformed that putting on a dress is enough to change it Or is this shameless sexual purple clad girl someone I can t imagine as a friend a part of me She s right I say nodding I am in love with him but it I m not I d never I wouldn t do that The doctor looks at me sitting before him in my vulgar dress and he believes me I know it Does this sound like a 20 something victim to you I found the memoir as a whole to be rather distorted I m still uncertain if Kathryn lost her virginity when she was 17 to a dildo or to her father Mrs Harrison s recollection of events are in no particular order and we are arely given dates so I had no idea how old Kathryn was when incidents took place I do have a few opinions but I feel like I m teetering the line towards assholism so I m going to stop while I m still considered a respectful reviewer I hope Special thanks to Carla Ashlee and Lucy for listening to me talk shit vent via phone text and personal message Hey I never said I was an angel MWAH
