drawing of a woman's face with text across the image; text reads "He allowed her all her vividness. The movie was so good, I forgot she was my mother. It's you who has shrunken, she seemed to say to me. And I had to step back a few rows, coloring. 'I hate you!' She shot me a malevolent glare straight in, the look that breaks the lens. The camera took a dive crazily, as if the cameraman had just fainted; the shot hung stupidly in the balance. She had that triumphant look on her face- -the close-up held - - the look that forever cut away to scenes of shocking disarray and derangement, violence and insanity. She glowed like a star - - a star playing with her oscar. She's never coming down! The screen was her natural element."
