I am hopelessly in love with Swampy Woman. Lisa J. Cihlar's 'The Insomniac's House' drips with estrogen. And quite a bit of testosterone. And much more. When you meet Swampy Woman you meet WOMAN. No messing about. She is nature herself, loving and cruel, caring and indifferent, soothing and inflicting pain. She is delicate and gentle, harsh and unforgiving, wicked witch and angel. She is truth. She knows when to heal and when to let die. Cihlar has created ur-woman in this scrap book, with passion, sometimes tongue-in-cheek and always with skilled, sharp writing that cuts to the chase. You want to be moved somewhere deep inside of you? Go for it. Read 'The Insomniac's House' by Lisa J. Cihlar.
