I read Baby Jane in two evenings. I couldn't quite stop. Now I have feelings. So many feelings! I think it's only through the wonders of dried frog pills that I have been having feelings rather than some kind of screaming breakdown, to be honest; it hit som critical areas. As it were.

I thought it was brilliant and also deeply depressing.

It's about depression and anxiety, and about destructive relationships. The main couple is lesbian; that isn't the point of the story at all but it was kind of, you know, one less barrier to identification.

Waagh.

Oh, Baby Jane was heartbreaking, I read it a couple years ago. Also, the main characters were so familiar to me, too! So many of my friends are like that, in that city, in that subculture (or similar), with those kinds of problems...

Isn't it nice with books that actually are relevant to ones life? A rare and beautiful things, that's what it is.

Oh yeah, that sounds like it could be hard to read.
