      I thought she was talking about death.

      You know what I’m talking about.

      No, I don’t. And you, author, know this very well. I wish I knew. And you’re the one with the power to tell me. But you won’t. Why?

      What’s going on here?

        Your question had me on Google and I found a fabulous article about her in Vanity Fair. It’s posted on Readup. See above comment. Thanks for the push to know more! She sounds like an incredible writer and I will purchase one of her books - but which one?

      Having looked up this author, the ex-wife of Karl Ove, I think, perhaps, she is talking to God and referring to her own struggles with bi-polar disease (the darkness) that her father also had. I posted the article about her, from Vanity Fair, on Readup. I think she sounds even more compelling, as a writer, than her husband.
