This thesis is presented in two parts: a novella and an exegetical essay. The novella, an autobiography structured episodically, comprises the major part of the work. It is followed by a long essay that critically comments on and contextualises the creative work. The exegesis seeks to explicate and weave theoretical and critical writings about autobiography, particularly those from a feminist perspective, with the life writings of women who have experienced intra-familial child sexual assault. Finally, the exegesis explores and examines my own incest autobiography in light of research on women's life writing.
