Abstract: The PhD by creative writing at the University of Adelaide consists of both a major piece of creative writing of book length, and a scholarly essay that reflects theoretically and/or critically on the creative work. In this submission, the exegesis explores the subject matter of the autobiographical text, and the impulses underlying it; that of a naive reader/interlocutor struggling with issues pertaining to (post modern) writing, genre, truth and knowledge; and that of a feminist scholarship, reflecting on illegitimacy's discursive association's with the feminine' and with marginalised knowledges, including embodied or corporeal knowledge. It articulates some of the critical moments in the production of the text which demanded that truths be consciously expressed through imagined symbolic equivalents, or fictions
