Running a bit behind today. I thought of a #SweetJane being Jane Austen, Jane Bennet & Jane Eyre, but then I decided to go with the opposite & pick the decidedly less sweet Jane Steele. This imagining of Jane Eyre as a serial killer is a fun read. ❤️
“A Dick and Jane story written in blood and battered bone.
See Spot run.
See Spot run from a gaping chest wound.
Run Spot run.
See Detective smear Spot into a baggy for DNA testing.”

First thing I thought of for 'Jane': I've only seen the film adaptation, but would love to see a production. Great performances all around in the film, but am I alone in thinking that Alice is the only one of the bunch I'd actually like to meet in real life? The rest bugged me for different reasons, but they were still good characters.

(Day 11 - #SweetJane)
*My favorite book by “sweet” Jane Smiley is “Ten Days in the Hills.” It takes place shortly after the (fictional) 2003 Academy Awards ceremony, at a house party in the Hollywood Hills. Present are a director and his girlfriend, his ex-wife and her guru, and their daughter, among others. Smiley‘s novel (based on the “Decameron”) is peopled with spoiled navel-gazers obsessed with love and (the Iraq) war.
