2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Alex Knisely on September 4, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Touching, even moving; but the sister never succeeds in bringing to cohesion the madwoman's life. Perhaps a fool's errand to start with, trying to piece together a narrative, since the subject of the biography had so fractured an existence. But in the absence of information on the madwoman, the sister's reactions are what should hold the book together. She writes of her frustration, bafflement, anger, loss. Are these enough? Do they accomplish a synthesis? Splinters and shards all around, and frustration and bafflement for me when the book ended.
