read this now!

And by "now," I mean go get a copy immediately, it's excellent! Anne Brontë writes a haunting portrait of the slow demise of a marriage between an unapologetic alcoholic and the woman who is determined to be faithful to him. There's intrigue, there's a feminist leaning, and there's the beautiful tension that results from telling a story  in that meandering way that is so foreign to modern society. What more could you ask for?
