Gaining a Sense of Self
Karen Laura-Lee Wilson
Karen Laura-Lee Wilson’s memoir is a detailed and of her first twenty-five years growing up in a sole-parent family with a narcissistic mother. Embedded in her story are universal themes of abandonment, love, hate, determination, optimism and endurance. Mostly set in Brisbane, Australia during the 1950s and 1960s, her journey is a search for identity. Eventually Karen finds her own path through education, positive and negative sexual relationships and travel.
