Anyone who really knows me knows that once I've loudly proclaimed my opinion, I have a hard time admitting that I've changed my mind--or worse, that I was wrong. (Steve, the giant squid/blue whale incident might come to mind).
Well, here goes.
I no longer think that The Lonely Doll is a creepy book. Sad, yes, and dark. But after reading Dare Wright's biography, I'll probably add her books to my personal collection.
It's a must read for anyone who's interested in children's books. Even if you aren't particularly interested in kid's books, it's a completely fascinating biography. But get ready to be depressed.
