JK That title sounds incredibly familiar for some reason...

Jacob It's a fairly famous feminist fable by a famous founding feminist, so its familiarity is a foregone fact.

Sorry, got carried away there. You can read it here on Project Gutenberg. It's fantastic--and free!

JK ... you should write a review with heavy use of alliteration.

Is it about a woman going insane staying at home? Or just a woman going insane in general?

Jacob It's about a woman going insane in her bedroom. I read it a few weeks ago in another anthology, but I think I need to read it again, hence this collection.

JK Ah! There's this show 'American Horror Story' and this is mentioned at some point. That's where I know it from.

Free sounds good too. I'll have to give this a download.
