Read in October, 2001

Another book that I loved by Francesca Lia Block. The heroine is consumed by self-destructive influences (anorexia and dangerous living) in the aftermath of the death of her father who sexually molested her. It is only in the figure of Jack, her demon lover, sent to destroy her? redeem her? that she can ultimately come to terms with her painful past.

Despite it's brevity, I think there's a lot in this book that I would have to read over again to understand. The imagery is beautiful though.
