Oh, but I love that book (it's called "Deerskin", btw, based on the 
fairy-tale "Donkeyskin")!

No, it's not nice...but it's not nasty, either.  There is a very horrible 
episode early in the book, which drives the rest of the plot.  But 
ultimately I think it's a very hopeful book, and very well written.

Until the sky falls on our heads...
