Rejection, betrayal, and a girl's discovery of evil are the themes of this strange, haunting novel. Discarding such aids to realism as geography and mundane physical facts, thisnarrativetells the story of a young girl, rejected by her narcissistic and vengeful mother, whose life thereafter is a continuing series of betrayals that can lead only to the dead end of madness and death.Demonstrating anearly perfect control over language, this tale describes, in the simplest and most ordinary of terms, the bizarre and hallucinatory landscape of derangement."
