A hauntingly original journey into the human mind delineating (quite accurately) Freud's conception of the Death Instinct. I found the book's main character, Lisa, the personification of the contradictions and inconsistencies that plague us all. The poetry she writes at the beginning of the novel is almost unbearably poignant. This book was on the reading list for an Honours course I took on Freud. I recommend it highly!

Not for the faint of heart, but a fancinating story that can be read on so many levels. The first 2 chapters are overtly sexual, but stick through them and enjoy the rest of the story that will haunt you for a very long time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
