The best of her works. Others tend to be murky and depressing.
editor September 8th, 2009 08:14 AM PST
I agree Sargasso is the most enthralling of her works, a sustained act of imagination in a way that the others are not. As for the others, though--depressing, yes. Murky, no. I whipped spellbound through "After Leaving Mr. Mackenzie," "Sleep It Off, Lady" and "Good Morning Midnight." Admittedly, this happened during one of the darker periods of my life, but how grateful I was then for her company.
