In recalling an early memory of her grandmother’s response to her cleft lip, Aspinall writes: ‘Did she want me to look better so that I would feel better? ’ (14). And further, in relation to the same grandmother: ‘She attempted to console me, even though it seemed that it was she, not I, who needed consolation. At the time, I wasn’t thinking about who I could have been, but she was’ (14). Aspinall writes about having to repeatedly decide, throughout her life, whether to have surgery to relieve the discomfort of others.
