The curtain

The curtain

A lot of the drama is created by the red curtain opening at the beginning of each act and then closing again to signified a major passage of time. 

By staging the book as a play Burton was able to cast herself as a narrator and become part of the story. Life Story is also her own story and she shares her experiences with the reader.
