Bastard Out Of Carolina

- Bastard Out Of Carolina “Pay Attention to Detail” ========================= One must consider a little history on Dorothy Allison in order to see how the directions that she takes the novel add up.

During this time, she also found someone who seemed normal, yet she had experienced the same “incest” (Megan 74). This discovery removed some of her separation that she believed her abuse created between her and the world (Amazon 74)....   [tags: English Literature]
