Geraldine Brooks   ::   Foreign Correspondence

 cover Buy this book from:Amazon UKAmazon US
I'd hated my parents' strictness about curfews and living on my own because it was holding me back from the adult passions I craved. But in New York I began to wonder if that wasn't preferable to what had happened to my American friends, who seemed to have had adult passions thrust at them. They'd been forced into bloom like branches of hot-house blossoms.
If we are bruised at all, it is by the images we carry, the memories we wish we didn't have. I would always have them, dark pictures in a mental album that I could never throw away.
