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.

Note to self so I don't keep asking Val over and over like a broken record: that author who sounds interesting and who you've been told about several times and seen talking about stuff on TV and whose name you keep forgetting is called Sofi Oksanen. Right. Are we clear on that? Good.

Although for now it's not as though I don't have far too many books sitting around waiting to be read anyway.
