Paint It Black by Janet Fitch
Paint It Black by Janet Fitch is a gripping examination of the depths of grief, the hopeful moments in life that are lost, and the path self-destructive tendencies tend to take. Josie Tyrell struggles to come to terms with her grief over the death of her lover, Michael Faraday, leading to an unhealthy relationship based on need and suspicion with Michael's mother, Meredith. Filled with artistic, talented, and tormented characters, Paint It Black engrosses the reader to the last page with a superb use of language and intense storytelling.
