Love of celebrities? Name-dropper addict? Well, it really doesn't matter if this woman is too crazy about famous people, it's just one of her quirks. Her writing is glorious, as is her narration, and I only wish she had been a bit deeper with her perceptions. She seems to gingerly float around the perimeters of her problems rather than violate their boundaries and really penetrate. She's successful and loved and nurtured from birth by parents who seem to be really good people so why is she so depressed? In this book it's a guessing game that demonstrates how mental illness - the book does not illuminate the distinction between mental illness and depression - can happen even in the best of outward circumstances. I look forward to more from Emma Forrest.

My wife recommended this to me, it was very well done. I normally read history and sci-fi so this was a big departure for me but kept me listening.
