In and Out of Madness

“One of us must die,” is the mantra of Lee Thames, a bi-polar, sexually driven woman who, additionally, suffers from multiple personality disorder. She escapes from a mental hospital, where she was confined after an unsuccessful suicide attempt, and spends a reflective five hours, hiding in her home, preparing for the ‘perfect murder.’ She takes the reader on a rough ride, with her multiple personalities, through an abusive childhood, raging sexual encounters with multiple partners, and life threatening outbursts that culminate in the act she is preparing to commit

    Being very familiar with mental illness I found Lee’s voice disturbing, compelling and completely believable. From the first page I couldn’t look away from the train wreck that I knew was coming and I wasn’t disappointed in how the events unfolded. An excellent look into someone’s life that leaves you with the feeling of “but for the grace of God go I.”

    Chasing Away Big Maw, August 29, 2009

    In her enthralling, compelling narrative, N.L. Snowden, giving
    voice to her heroine Lee, performs wonderous exoricisms. Lee has
    a chilling, terrifying early start in life: Big Maw, her grandmother, her mother’s mother. Big Maw pinning Lee down in a
    tub of deep water, rubbing Lee raw in all her tender places, dragging her naked into a room full of strangers, spreading her out
    naked on the bed, splaying her legs.
    “Please don’t make me stay with Big Ma,” Lee later begs her mother.
    “Something bad happened.”
    Lee is perhaps seven when she is able to make this plea. Her
    mother’s answer is to whip Lee mercilessly. Not simply to whip her, but to whip her in front her friends, who look on with horror
    and hilarity. Lee, her mother pronounces, is telling a story, a lie.

    So Lee’s tale, Snowden giving voice to Lee, begins. And the tale
    is a whopper, intense and compelling. The voice, brave, authentic,
    real, never ceases to surprise and delight. It tells no lies.

    The vicissitudes of bipolar endogenomorphic moodswings with overtones of post-traumatic dissociative umwelt, along with sexual addiction relationship conflicts are the core issues underlying this enthralling autobiographical first novel which is hopefully to be followed by further such cogent fiction with which many of us can identify and relate from a broad-spectrum of temperamental diversity and life experience. It is highly recommended and certainly among the best of many books I have read in recent times.
