Structure

There are divisions between certain parts of the text in the form of spaces and paragraphs, but there are no chapter or part separations. This allows Malcolm to create a flow of information and discovery that develops for the reader as it did for her. Just as one interview followed another, one conflicting opinion, conclusion, or voice followed another for Malcolm, so they flow for the reader. The lack of separation or division also allows the reader to see the work as a whole. For the reader to understand Malcolm’s message that the processes of law and journalism, writing and characterization, discovery and understanding are all an ambiguous, subjective whole.
