    When a friend asked me whether I liked the book I was reading, I told her, It s refreshing A novel about women in prison I was dead serious It was only after my friend was losing it, laughing so hard, that I realized how weird my comment was Laughing now too, I tried to defend myself I just get tired of straight old life there s so much regular out there Can I help it if I like to read about down and outers The truth is, the dark is sometimes my light I prefer rain to sun, for instan When a friend asked me whether I liked the book I was reading, I told her, It s refreshing A novel about women in prison I was dead serious It was only after my friend was losing it, laughing so hard, that I realized how weird my comment was Laughing now too, I tried to defend mys...
