At the Bottom of the River

At the Bottom of the River - Jamaica Kincaid A paragraph long, single sentence that showcases a conversation (more like a dictatorship) between a mother and her daughter. In this short story -that takes one full page- the mother is telling her daughter, relentlessly, the correct and incorrect ways to do everything; from house chores, to cooking, to how to take care of men, etc. Most importantly, the mother keeps telling her daughter how not to be "the slut she is so hell bent on becoming." Even though there is no prove what so ever that the daughter has disrespected her mother or her upbringing in any way.
