samskivert: Falling Leaves (2)

13 January 2005

What a depressing book. I suppose I can’t fault the author for wanting to share her tale of growing up in a vicious loveless family and it’s a small miracle that she managed to find any love within herself at all after suckling from the dry, thorny teat up to and beyond her parents’ death. However, this is not my preferred brand of schadefreude. Pass the happiness and triumph please.
