I love this short story, I really do. It's twisted and bizarre and totally reflects the oppression I experienced when my husband put me on the rest cure because I was hysterical after the birth of my two children and needed to be locked up in a creeptastic nursery in an old seemingly haunted countryside mansion we could rent for wicked cheap while he went off to the city to deal with important doctorly things and I stayed home, not watching the children, trying to evade the entangled clutches of my personal evil nanny and the lady-monster-paisley-face-grotesque who is CLEARLY trying to get at me and my business from behind the wallpaper in my barred-window nursery of doom.
