ANIMA by Marie Buchanan


Email this review


In ""nacrine"" prose, an equally ridiculous story of possession in which Olive, sister to Edward, runs his household dutifully while committing to paper the mad (schizophrenic persona/anima) thoughts in the sick head of her maiden body with a deformed foot. Not so maiden, it would emerge, as she hopes in the future to possess another man while in the past hiding her rape, at 15, by her brother and its strange fruit -- a mongoloid. There's more to come -- much more -- before Olive takes leave of her senses and you yours.
