Cheryl Garner, "You never know the whole story" (2011)
I am not telling the whole story - using unimaginative language – language resolutely plain and rational and allowing to be lead on by questions, the story is interrupted by questions, that little space between… turns on expectation and anticipation as they appear curiously over the surface.
The recollection of events, experience and knowledge of the storyteller attaching what is said to what is unsaid. He recounts the events, expressing and telling his story creating a permanent change in the relationship between people - it is a performance of one narrator.
The story is a ritual a serial telling unrestrained and spontaneous in the form of continuity it has been played before and will be played again.
