REVIEW ¾ Mouthing the Words SUMMARY ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Camilla Gibb By turns harrowing and hilarious this adroitly narrated winner of the Toronto Book Award re creates the world in the imagination of Thelma It's a world in which she can escape some of her painful childhood realities like those games her father likes to make her play where he's the boss and she the naughty secretary And her mother so fiercely favors her younger brother the cherubic Willy that Thelma finds herself perpetually in emotional exile No wonder Thelma asks. From the look of this book I was expecting casual young adult fiction but it was neither a casual story nor YA lit Relatively short at only 238 pages the novel was intense serious with subtle touches of humor and beautifully written Gibb covers some intense subject matter such as the sexual abuse and mental illness of the protagonist and handles it adeptly the protagonist s emotional state is convincingly bleak but without turning the novel into a suffocating wastelandSome uotes I was born into a crowded room at St Mary Abbot s hospital South Kensington in 1968 Born in London into a month of nights and days only distinguishable form one another by degrees of grey Born into a nation that regarded the delivery of new life as embarrassing and unseemly that operated a National Health Service which viewed birth as a pathology necessitating a ten day internment In Grade One when I was given a fresh clean notebook in which to write something called My Autobiography I wrote according to the certainty of the collective narrative I was born purple and dead I was born in England as if to imply that birthplace determined birth state In fact as my mother describes it it may well have I did not burst forth into being I was pumped into existence by a machine Although I was the result of premature ejaculation I was not overly excited about being released into the world pp 10 11 Perhaps I d missed the point or spoiled her one attempt at female bonding but she rummaged around in the bathroom closet and thrust a box of tampons at me Thanks Mum I said But I won t be needing these She does not realize that I have just decided never to have a period No thank you very much I am just not interested in going that route You can take these straight back to wherever they came from p 86 You should do something with your hair Binbecka has started to say to me It s not becoming Do something like mine And clean your nails What s wrong with you Thelma Don t you want boys to like you she asks me No I don t want to paint my lips in Silver City Pink pull up my kilt and fold it over at the waist or press my face to the wire fence and giggle through to the other side I don t understand this new language where I am supposed to say mean things about my friends like Oh my gawd she s like such a bitch and then spend three hours that night on the phone with her talking about boys I don t understand p 87 That was it for me Since I couldn t be adopted myself since I couldn t seem to embrace a religion or a lover because that would involve ghastly deeds for which I was uite unprepared since I couldn t adopt a child or a cause or a nation I became a lawyer or rather I adopted the idea of the profession It would take me many many years to actually become a lawyer I still had all my madness to get through after all but at least the declaration was the start of something While everybody around me was so preoccupied with their bodies their breasts their exotic dancing their bonking I would devote myself to logical arguments and Faustian bargains Of course it didn t occur to me that as an anorexic I was probably the one most preoccupied with my body I thought that I had transcended my body by refusing to yield to its basal demands I wasn t really going to make much of a lawyer until I could come to terms with the fact that I inhabited both a mind and a body At least if I focused my mind I d inhabit something p 113 I do have a date as a matter of fact I say Just not the kind of date she imagines where a guy picks me up in his car and I wear a miniskirt and heels and I listen to him talk about himself all night and then he pulls out his Visa and then his penis shortly thereafter and I feel like I can t protest the latter because I haven t protested the former p 201 We are moving in each other s shadows taking delicate steps at fifty degree angles peering out occasionally to catch the sun in each other s hair It involves talking into the early hours of the morning on benches outside pubs after closing Holding hands and speaking softly and sharing little details hitherto housed in a bulging file of secrets It is lovely and I am becoming braver I think this man is my boyfriend I think I am in something called a relationship It is hard for me to know if I am because I do not know what it must be but perhaps there are just not enough words in English to describe this kind of arrangement Arrangement As if it has order a structure somehow p 147 8 Goldelse painful childhood realities like those games her father likes to make her Hansel and Gretel Faerie Tale Collection #5 play where he's the boss and she the naughty secretary And her mother so fiercely favors her younger brother the cherubic Willy that Thelma finds herself The Death of Ben Linder The Story of a North American in Sandinista Nicaragua perpetually in emotional exile No wonder Thelma asks.
