Title
Bilingual Being: My Life as a Hyphen
Abstract
A survivor of childhood abuse, the author traces the influence of her mother's tongue in the formation of her identity, and the role her second language played in providing a psychological sanctuary. She reflects on the ambiguities of growing up in Quebec City in a primarily French household while attending English schools as she recounts the emotional gains and losses of a life lived in two languages.
