really liked it
Read in October, 2012

I read the Dora case studies in college, so I was instantly drawn to reading Dora: A Headcase

This book completely met my expectations. 1) interesting and memorable characters (Ida/Dora, Sid, Obsidian, ect) 2) Strange situations and occurrences (underground art films below highway overpasses, getting naked and dousing vodka on your body at a Nordstrom department store 3) Family tensions and conflicts that lend themselves to complex characterizations.

I wanted all these things when I picked up Dora: A Headcase . Chuck Palahniuk does a great job introducing the work and it's author. Lidia Yuknavitch is an excellent storyteller. Yuknavitch uses contemporary characters and raises important issues of our day, but keeps the story focused enough that I can stay with it.
