WRITING SAMPLE FROM NOVEL

Lucia,the Girl who Danced in Shadows’ relating to performance ‘Whose Feet’

THE CHAIR

PARIS 1927

I am twenty-six or seven perhaps. A young woman now and smooth of face.

In the sin of Paris I am, as sure as day, in the bar in Fouquet’s (see the lights). And they have just delivered me the news, that they intend to marry. That is my father and my mother: I do.

I eat my swallow down.

“Are you mad?”  I say, and scorn the very thought of them: standing bare-faced there in front of God, in mad pretense that all is well in their distorted world.

“Why now?” I laugh, “You cannot take my fate into your hands without informing me?”

My bat brown hair is flying all around. “And did you ever think to tell me before that you never married?”

My voice reaches the far corner of the wall and bounces hard around the room. All eyes on me: I’m running off a cliff.

Mama turns to me, her sound like salt-deep death will drown me now.

“Stop this tantrum.”

Her face is hacked with hate. “This is our wish. Do you hear my words?” She turns her string of beads over and over in her hands. They rush like pebbles on the tide.

“We do not have to explain our actions to you Madam”. Her words they waterfall, her eyes they soar high with her voice: “You could not just be happy for us of-course. You are nothing but a selfish, self-centered, bastard, pretending that you care.”

“If I am a bastard,” I scream and lift the chair up high in air, “Then you, have made me one.”

And I bring the chair down hard against her scream.

One of my ‘King Lear ‘moments Babo says, but the King has stepped out way too far beyond his time.

Babo pleads to save me over and over and over, till he is not there.

And I am

Here.

Patient 120…Joyce, Lucia (daughter of author James Joyce)
