Margaret Atwood Quotes: My Mother Has Few Stories To Tell About

My Mother Has Few Stories To Tell About These Times. What I Remember From Them Is The Odd Look I Would Sometimes Catch In Her Eyes. It Struck Me, For The First Time In My Life, That My Mother Might Be Afraid Of Me. I Could Not Even Reassure Her, Because I Was Only Dimly Aware Of The Nature Of Her Distress, But There Must Have Been Something Going On In Me That Was Beyond Her: At Any Time I Might Open My Mouth And Out Would Come A Language She Had Never Heard Before. I Had Become A Visitant From Outer Space, A Time-traveller Come Back From The Future, Bearing News Of A Great Disaster.
