“You cannot disown what is yours. Flung out, there is always the return, the reckoning, the revenge, perhaps the reconciliation.

“There is always the return. And the wound will take you there. It is a blood-trail.

“All my life I have worked from the wound. To heal it would mean an end to one identity – the defining identity. But the healed wound is not the disappeared wound; there will always be a scar. I will always be recongnisable by my scar.”

– Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Can Be Normal?
