You fit into me like a hook in an eye
A fishhook
An open eye

Haha. Well, she was a bit dark and bitter in the 60's and 70's. I haven't read any of her later stuff.

This was a good book, a woman who turns into an animal living on a remote island. For all of us who have turned animal on remote islands and feasted on our companions, hypnotized by the maddening silence and wind in the trees.

Her boyfriend musters up things to say behind his beard.
Her friend looks like a battered barbie doll without her makeup, and sneaks to bed with the light out because her husband David doesn't like to see her with no makeup.

Don't watch the movie, that was pretty bad.
