Read from January 17 to 21, 2010

Didn't like her constant bad luck with boyfriends, but the rest of the protagonist's traits were fun. The death of the actress was mourned, but after the truth comes out you wanted to kill her!!!
The erotomania described by former sex unit prosecutor Fairstein was detailed and interesting.
Based on the Diagnostic Statistical Manual, 4th ed. (DSM-IV, 4th ed.)
The central theme of the delusion is that another person is in love with the individual
The delusion often concerns idealized romantic love and spiritual union rather than sexual attraction — “a perfect match”
The object of affection is usually of a higher status and can be a complete stranger
Efforts to contact the victim are common, but the stalker may keep the delusion a secret
Males, seen most often in forensic samples, come into contact with the law during misguided pursuits to “rescue” the individual from some imagined danger. Females are seen most often in clinical samples
