then I read this:
I don't feel blue anymore. I'm just really happy to be who I am and living where I live and when I live. Wow. I first heard about this book from Bookslut. Thought I would give it a try. Picked it up on Sunday and started it on the bus home . I finished it last night after work and then had an awful time trying to go to sleep. There is some amazing/brutal/stark/desperate imagery in this book. There is this fine cord of love and humanity in it though that is really very beautiful.
NOT a light read. I think I'll go read a Terry Pratchett to get the taste of this one out of my brain.
