    1. Phew. This was a difficult, claustrophobic, sometimes harrowing read. It consists of the thoughts--transcribed in the fleeting, circuitous, confusing structures of real-time webs of thought-- of one mother and her three grown daughters, all on a single day. The writing is amazing, stunning, but almost suffocatingly so. The use of the Eggleston photo on the cover is gorgeous. Look at that Virginia Woolf lookalike! I will read more Darrieussecq, for sure. Crazy as it sounds, I sort of want to read [...]

    2. One of the very few books I've given up on I totally hated it. Just couldn't get into to it's 'stream of thought' format. It felt terribly self important and high brow twaddle.
