The Secret Life of the Lonely Doll: The Search for Dare Wright -- Jean Nathan

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.
