Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Strange, subtle, maddening; in the rigmarole of the ongoing days. Though all are quite different, the feel this little book has reminded me of a couple of other things: Unica Zurn's 'The house of illnesses', and Leonora Carrington's 'Down Below'. Short, opaque, often beautiful and frantic, these 3 books (esp 'Down Below') document breakdowns, and revelations (true and false). Whew!
