bottoming out

by carrie on Jun 21, 2007

An interesting book... There are some interesting mind pictures here, but it seemed as if the person was on drugs when she wrote it, and yet she wasn't. You need to read it through a few times to truly try and grasp what is being said. Definitely a mother/daughter relationship in most of the stories. Had to read it for an English class. Glad it was a short book. Seeing runon sentences in print and being marked with points off for having them in my own paper seemed rather like a double standard...
