expecting something fluffy and been baffled byhe freuent discussion of philosophy literature and madness it contains But having loved Drive the uality of Hustvedt s writing so much particularly inhe brilliant What I Loved I was pretty sure I would enjoy it nevertheless This is a moving deliberately sentimental story with wry humour Rti Strategies That Work in the 3-6 Classroom than its
