In her autobiographical novel Bastard Out of Carolina, Dorothy Allison utilizes storytelling to bear witness to the complicated truth of her trauma as a "white trash" incest survivor. While her fiction provides a brutally honest testimony to devastating effects of sexualized violence taking place in a working-class home, Allison feels compelled to speak about the concurrence of erotic desire and violence through the pre-adolescent protagonist Bone`s masochistic fantasies. In response to her stepfather`s sexual and physical abuse, Bone reenacts sexual trauma. In this essay, I closely read these reenactments of violence and argue that the inventive use of real in her fantasies allows her a certain degree of empowerment and consolation; more importantly, fantasies become a locus where Bone constructs and articulates her complex desire. Bone`s fantasy-making, I believe, is analogous to Allison`s fiction writing. By staging the sexual fantasies in Bastard where she reenacts her sexual trauma, Allison explores the areas of conflict in her life. Allison`s use of storytelling rearticulates her childhood trauma in a medium that creates a possibility of witnessing to the connection between violence and desire in her life.
