The book's about people with multiple personality disorder. The old saws are all there about how one gets into this position (abusive family life, breaking into pieces to be as safe as one can, etcetera); what's interesting is that this is a non-MPD author, writing about it. It has... I'm not sure. It feels right, to me? It makes sense, so to speak. It doesn't seem cliched or what have you.
I'm enjoying it a lot, honestly- but I find myself wondering what someone more familiar with the syndrome in question would think of it. Pretty straightforward read, oddly (not what I'd expect of a book on such a big topic)-- but engrossing. Warm.
I'll see what I think by the time I finish it.
