it was amazing

A dazing, brutal experience. The slashing of
morality is maintained at the level of manners.
I resist "Wide S Sea" but find a perfect combination
of intensity and artistic completeness in early Rhys.

Dolors Have no patience...Good Morning, Midnight, then?

Sketchbook Yes ! Do it !

Dolors Yes, Sir!

Mariel The Voyage in the dark she whispers. It is the first and the books work in progression like threads of guts weaving to the next book.

Sketchbook Mariel makes a good point.

Mariel I think it added a specialness to read and know them from book to book, as if you could say "I feel as if I knew you my whole life even though we only just met".

Dolors I'm sold! I read that her initial works didn't have much acceptation, she must have been advanced for her time and not "politically" correct. Impossible to resist, I'm buying this for sure! Thank you both.

Sketchbook This is a dark novel, but among her best.
