I'd have to agree.
The next book I have started reading is "Sickened" (the memoir of a Munchausen by proxy childhood). Weird, sad and hardly believable, until you face up to the fact that this is an illness - not belonging to the "ill" person but to the person who 'creates' the illnesses and symptoms of the poor child involved. It is written by the survivor of such an illness that belonged to her mother.
Fascinating in an uneasy sort of way.
