"The secret was revealed to me by Carl Jung, and was further illuminated by Sigmund Freud, Herman Hesse, Patti Smith, David Bowie, and Sylvia Plath. Laugh if you must at this cast of characters, but at this ripe intersection in my life, their combination became my personal recipe for disaster..." So begins Van Horn's amazing graphic novella, a collection of short stories and vignettes, mostly autobiographical, part mystical exploration, depicting incidents from the author's life, as well as those of her friends, neighbors and relatives. The title story is an intense autobiographical account of her nervous breakdown which is alternately riotous and terrifying. Van Horn uses her trademark painstaking scratchboard style (as seen in Weirdo and Twisted Sisters) for every page, giving the book a shockingly intense visual look.
