What a strange, literary, thoughtful, intellectual, creepy, brilliant book. Kimmel is really showing her chops as a writer of literary fiction here and this is not for light readers. Discussions of Jungian archetypes sit side by side with examinations of mythology and psychological symbolism all while we watch the main character try to make sense of her daily life while sorting through her sordid past. A really captivating heroine. We're not sure what's wrong but clearly something is. What's real? What's lies? What's disassociation? I have to go back and read it again to be certain, and I'm not sure even that will clear it all up. It's fascinating to be sure. A very good read.
