I finished this book and picked up White Oleander, which I last read when I was twenty, twenty years ago. They are sister novels, kindred in their intricate exposures of women’s experiences in the privacy of their own minds. Both books have kept me up late this week, kept me in bed and away from real life. Both make me want to write novels that keep women awake at night, thankful that most people don’t care about novels, that they aren’t compelled to open the covers and read what’s so carefully set down inside them. This novel is the epitome of escapist fiction -- both inside and out.
