it was amazing
bookshelves: 2015-from-the-tbr-pile, mental-health, favourite-fiction

An amazing, brilliant book, I was addicted to it, the location, the language, Anna's life, so desperate and painful, but superbly and poetically written. Definite shades of Emma Bovary. Full review to come.

“...analysis isn't pliers, and truth is not teeth: you can't pull it out by force. A mouth stays closes as long as it wants to. Truth is told when it tells itself.”
