Source Notes

From Madeleine A. Polland in Something About the Author Autobiography Series, Volume 8, edited by Joyce Nakamura (Gale, 1989), page 227: "It seems to me that, like all books, to start at the beginning is best, and the beginning for me was at two minutes past midnight on Sunday, May 31, 1918... My temporarily disappointing birth took place in a grey house on a hill in a fishing village called Kinsale in the south of Ireland."
