This thesis contains 3rd party copyright material. ----- The major challenge while developing Since the Accident was the need to discover a form that would allow it to become what it yearned to be: a novel which concentrated only on what was essential to it and at the same time was able to generate its own internal momentum and complexity. The solution lay in the strengthening and foregrounding of the narrative voice, along with an internalising of the action. In Since the Accident, there are multiple narrators. The main narrative follows the story one sister tells another to make sense of her experiences following a serious car accident. Using journeys, both metaphysical and actual, and an inter-layering of narrative voices, the novel attempts a representation of the mind’s efforts to understand itself.
