You know, I like a bleak book. I like introspection. And beautiful writing is important. Lacey’s first novel hit all these buttons but collapsed in the last third, pages lost in her head, still aimless, hardly having changed. Still, I look forward to the new Biography of X and more of her wry crackerjack characterizations and writing. ( )

Well, this was probably the least satisfying thing I've read for a while, and the main reason I've given it 3 stars is because I got through it because it was mercifully short. It's a little hard to tell what's going on here. On the surface, a woman is having a hard time coping with her life because of the lasting effects of her sister's suicide, and decides to leave her husband without a word and travel halfway around the world to New Zealand, to take up a vague "hey if you're ever in New Zealand, look me up" invitation she received from a stranger once. I liked the concept, but really it is a kind of stream of consciousness account of this woman's mental breakdown. Eventually, after wandering a foreign country like a vagabond for what appears to be months, punctuated by encounters with people who ultimately find her anti-social, or who bug her in some way, she ends up in hospital. She has the opportunity to figure out what is wrong with her psyche during a psychological assessment, but is unable to come clean with the doctor about what is really going on in her head, despite expressing a wish (to herself, at least) to do so. So, she goes back to New York where she has nothing and nobody and the story just ends. And frankly, I did not find myself sympathetic to this character or the psychotic break or whatever she is going through. I hoped there would be some kind of resolution, but I wasn't surprised that there was not. ( )

Oof. I read this a year or so ago and I still think very sadly of that time. There are a few beautiful turns of phrase and visuals, but mostly I was bored as shit ( )

I skimmed it. The writing was frustrating and overwrought which made the characters weirdly empty, like shell people. I got a tension headache trying to constantly give this book the benefit of the doubt, but it’s just not as deep or insightful as it thinks it is. I don’t believe I’m missing anything by not reading every word. ( )

We are in the company of a mind relentlessly interrogating itself, in the tradition of Beckett and now Eimear McBride, but with its own singular flavour. As the book opens, the reader is as lost in Elyria’s thoughts as she is herself: all she knows is that her present situation is unbearable, she is in need of a “small and manageable life”, and has for some reason fixated on the half-hearted offer of a spare room on the other side of the world from a poet she met at a party.
