This is the story of a woman who is, simply put, very disturbed, She conducts a charade of a life, leaving chaos in her wake. It ends with her murdering her boyfriend and mutilating his corpse in a really gruesome manner. Actually, it doesn't quite end there. There is a trial, sentencing, prison. Not to spoil the story, but she tells the author she is happy there in prison. I would imagine so - she is finally safe from herself. I HIGHLY recommend this book *IF* you can stomach some really awful, really graphic scenes - starting with graphic descriptions of animals being skinned in a slaughterhouse. It's a really good story, and really well narrated.
Now here's the thing: This author is really remarkable. First of all, aside from this story just sort of coming out of the blue (as all her books seem to do), this book is really well written. Second, check out her other titles. She covers a wide range of topics - some you would not ordinarily expect a woman to cover. One of her titles is an autobiography. I'm picking it up! Apparently she's a TV chef! I don't watch TV so would have missed her, but definitely want to read her story!
