She is absolutely amazing. I have a special soft spot for "Good Morning Midnight" . We gave our daughter her name in gratitude.

There was a biography of her, "Jean Rhys" by Carol Angier, in which she suggests that most of Rhy's writing was at least in part self therapy.

She is brilliant on alienation, depersonalisation and stuff like that.

The other female witer I loved back then was Anna Kavan, in particular "Julia and the Bazooka".
