* Bird by Noy Holland

Once upon a time, the exhausted new mother in Bird was in love with a dangerous character who drank too much, roughed her up, and generally treated her quite badly. So she daydreams about her in that weird semi-conscious state that comes with waking up too much at night. The story is written in an alluring, hypnotic manner but I just could not get into her obsession.
