I am not certain why I am so fascinated with this writer. She had all sorts of issues. She drank too much (a confirmed alcoholic). She attempted to kill herself. She was often sarcastic and critical. She was very famous in her time and not necessarily for popular and good things. Still I am drawn to her writing, her quotes and her life. My family finds it oddly disturbing. I guess I see the humor. Perhaps I understand the sarcasm. Maybe, just maybe, we would have been friends.
