I suppose that before I say anything else about this book, I ought to address the first thing I always hear from people who have read "She's Come Undone": "I had to keep looking at the title page - I could not believe a man wrote it!" Yes, Lamb does embody the narrative voice of a troubled young woman amazingly well, but what is far more impressive to me is the voice of Dolores herself - whether she is engaged in the most self-destructive of behaviors, surviving the most intimate of violations, or emerging from intense depression and self-loathing, her voice carries along the reader like a tidal wave, absolutely relentless. The other aspect of the book that impressed me was the interweaving of historical events, mainly from the 1960s, without those events overwhelming the story. The first lunar landing, Woodstock, and other events are important narrative threads and certainly important to anyone alive during that time period, but they do not become tangents that forget the characters and situations the reader has been following, unlike some stories set in the '60s that I have read.
