Pascale Hendricks rated it really liked it Jul 26, Crisis A detailed description of one particular crisis, covering similar ground to The Man of Jasmine but told using more stripped-down, straightforward language in a style that at times approaches breezy.

Michaux reminded her of “The Man of Hmobre a fictional character she “married” when she was six. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
Whenever these birdless, greyish-black wings fly up too close to her, she raises her hand in a sudden anxiety and fends them off.
Large shapes — like wings — float up to her, opening and closing — gently at first — until they slowly fill the room and she has the impression that she is in the presence of apparitions which are not at all related to this world.

Nicole rated it it was amazing Nov 18, Similar in tone and subject hkmbre to Leonora Carrington’s Down Below available in English in House of Fear but more stylized than that piece, The Man of Jasmine is written in a third-person viewpoint that allows for the detachment also found in Down Below as well as some of Anna Kavan’s work covering similar ground e. Even better than her semi-autobiographical tale of almost-pre-teen-angst, Dark SpringUnica Zurn’s more overtly autiobiographical account of her years of battling what seems like a kind of severe bipolar disorder is somehow both more real and far more surreal, as she meticulously documents both the strange and captivating visions and thought so of her elevated moods along with the crippling stasis and boredom of her hospitalizations during the depressive stretches.
