Mirabelle replaces the absent friends with books and television mysteries of the PBS kind. The books are mostly nineteenth-century novels in which women are poisoned or are doing the poisoning. She does not read these books as a romantic lonely hearts turning pages in the isolation of her room, not at all. She is instead an educated spirit with a sense of irony. She loves the gloom of these period novels, especially as kitsch, but beneath it all she finds that a part of her identifies with all that darkness.

This is a really lovely novella, with an extremely sharp insights and a careful creation. There's immense payoff in what initially feels a little stilted and overly labored-over, but after the first few chapters it's easy to start relaxing into the narrative, and it also becomes less forced as you go through it. It's a bit more psychological as a literary creation than I expected going in, but it's a nice surprise, and ultimately Martin is both fair and careful with all of his characters -- even poor slutty Lisa is ultimately dealt with in a way that is both satisfyingly bruising but at the same time character-building and not crushing. Mirabelle and Ray are extremely interesting in their interactions, and their end is really very sweet. Jeremy is a bit of a stretch, but probably the only time that Martin is simply trying to make something happen, and it's almost worth it for the beautifully brittle way that he arranges the ending.

The last two paragraphs of the book should've been editted out -- for a novella, and particularly this one, so much is told briefly (though sometimes Martin gets a little too involved in *telling* the story rather than showing it) that it's a bit annoying how he steps on his own ending, and continues on after a lovely and real finale. It's a very small qualm -- I'm happy I read this book, and I'll recommend it to others.
