Who do you think you are?

Like ten chapters of an abnormal formation novel, the stories of this collection outline the character of Rose, favoring the role that her relationship with Mothermm Flo had overall to define the identity of her. The voice from which we receive the stories is that of a provisionally omniscient narrator who organizes the episodes of rose life in chronological order, leaving that the conflict between the desire for escape and awareness of the need to remain. Rose is the rebel and thoughtful little girl of the first story, punished by a father by a father inscrutable and closed; Rose is the greedy reader who keeps the thought of the sick father and the intolerance to the pettiness of the house at Fury of Shakespeare and Dickens; She is the teenager traveling from the little West Hanratty to Toronto, Victim and accomplice of a sordid sexual initiation by an impassive minister of worship. But Rose is also the young in love with the way she seems to love her Patrick Bartchford, driving in history at the same university who opened her doors thanks to a scholarship; She is the woman involved in an extramarital relationship destined to end in her awareness; It is the nervous mother of a girl wiser than her, and she finally the mature woman who comes back where everything had begun and finds the uninterrupted thread of an inner existence in the abrupt and inclementary tone of Flo Love never told.
