I write, in the first instance, to sort myself out, to further my discovery of who I am. This means often positioning myself at edges, thresholds. It also means attending to patterns of continuity within experience: self as story. Secondly, I write as an act of engagement with the human world in which I find myself. In Metamorphoses, my focus was on exposing the distortions of image and perception which underlie sexism - the arena of emotional and physical violence which has most impinged on my life and awareness.
