Estrangement

Family life was a story of parental indifference, of a young man's estrangement and of his rebellion against the artificial values and bigotry he witnessed at home. "Being an orphan," Albee quietly intones, "I imagined perhaps that I was an identical twin because there was something missing - not having parents or anything of that sort. I would have lots of conversations with me pretending that I was my identical brother."
