Johnson Right from the beginning, the narrator of Karen Memory informs us, in a voice that comes straight out of the Huckleberry Finn school of the vernacular, that her name is Karen Memery with an “e” and she is one of the girls at Madame Damnable’s Hotel Mon Cherie. The result is like a fun house - reflections that obscure some aspects of "reality" but highlight others.
