Last quote by Emma Brockes

As a kid I was terrified of public attention, so my child’s rush to centre stage came as a real surprise. I went to a one-year-old’s birthday party at the weekend, the kind of event I successfully avoided for the first 20 years of my adult life and that now constitutes the only time I go out. This one, at a restaurant in downtown Manhattan, featured a free bar for the parents, which seemed particularly mocking. What interested me was the way in which the party yanked me back to anxieties of yore. You think you’re a moderately high functioning 41-year-old and then poof, up pops the frightened child within.feedback
