Mother of invention

by H.A. Pitman | 01 June 2014
Category: General Biography
Synopsis
This is the story of the author's mother, who walked out on her poor, lower-class family in 1928 and, using her considerable beauty, re-invented herself as a high-class courtesan, mistress and masseuse. She destroyed all the evidence of her humble beginnings, burning papers and books which might have led to the discovery of uncomfortable truths. Eventually, however, some of these truths emerged and some episodes in her life could be re-constructed. It was a difficult but rewarding journey which gave her family some limited closure.
