Excerpt from An Evil Motherhood, an Impressionist Novel
My prefatory words shall be few, and relevant rather than graceful. As to myself, then - Nothing. How I learnt or invented my story will not interest the reader; enough that, had it the artistic misfortune to be "founded on facts," I should seek to redeem it with all the resources of Fiction.
Nature is often sensational in effects the significance of which we are unable to ignore. Some may barely tolerate such sensation; some hanker after comic relief or the restful padding of a love interest; perhaps but a few will understand a tragedy disclosed in torn cries, in embarassed silences, in unconscious words.
In conclusion, dare I admit that in "The Tragedy of a Brain" I have sought to defend weakness, in the court of humanity, and to satirize the strong ("sensible people!") who demand bricks without straw from the weak.
