Acquired via BookCrossing 07 Sep 2008 – passed along by Brumbie

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, given the blurb on the back and Bridget’s comments. In its slightly naive and disconnected tone it reminded me a bit of Stevie Smith’s work, as well as Dundy’s slightly better known “The Dud Avocado” and, in the setting, “The L-Shaped Room”. The plot was a bit silly and the drugs references a bit shoe-horned in, but it was a fairly convincing picture of a young girl’s descent into chaos, and a fun read.

I am going to offer this to the Virago group people on LibraryThing…
