  • Author's note: 'This is an extract from Lucia's Story (unpublished). It belongs in the sub-genre of diasporic life writing that fuses biography and autobiography to tell the story/s of both the individual and the family (examples include Running in the Family by Michael Ondaatje). Like many contemporary memoirs, Lucia's Story, blurs the lines between fiction and non-fiction. However, while most memoirs continue to be written in the first-person, the "I" of the text representing the author's voice, Lucia's Story utilises multiple narrators as well as third and first person points of view to create a memoir that privileges the inter-subjective over the individual.'
