it was amazing

This book is a beautiful illustration of what occurs when someone with a mental illness is allowed to control and dominate the family they are in. Denial, silence, magical thinking, it's all here. I can't imagine the price Jackson paid to write this novel but it's a masterpiece. It is the family reality of Heart of Darkness.
