Review by AriadneAranea
Norma, a strange and unreliable protagonist, quite literally pieced together from women's magazines, yearns to burst out of the constrained house-bound life in which she has been forced to live since her "accident". But it soon becomes obvious that all is not as it seems and that, if she succeeds, it could spell disaster for everyone... This is a tragedy, and a farce, and a piece of art. Brilliant.
