There doesn't seem to be a lot of #Irislove on Litsy - I wonder why? Is everyone to busy with contemporary books? I haven't read one in a long time because, I'll admit, they are intense and I've read almost all her novels, but there was a period in my life I found them enthralling. I still say her characters are more true to life in their dialogue and emotional expression than that of most writers. Not pictured here: A Word Child (borrowed).
