Friday night I read The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things by JT Leroy. This was harder going than Sarah, despite being just as quick a read. It was a lot bleaker, with the more fantastic elements from that book removed, which made the similar subject matter that much worse. It was still very compelling and I raced through it. Each interlinking story left the reader with a greater picture of this supremely dysfunctional family and the horrors they visited upon the child, who is the constant presence in each story. Heavy stuff and probably not best read all in one sitting.
