Like Oscar Wilde in such hotels, she spent a bit of time engaged with the wallpaper. Watching the wallpaper fade, why is it so ugly etc. She's a revelation, really. She had courage....imagine getting that down. There's noone really like her.

Anna Kavan, who started life as Marjorie Fergusen or something, was a (legal) heroin addict for 30 years up to the middle 60s when she died.
Some of her titles are somewhat overwrought (Machines in the Head, that sort of thing). She'd spent some time when young in Burma, perhaps.
I suppose she's a bit like Kafka on drugs, but not so good. Still, she's OK.
