Erica's Plight. "The Colour of Walls" by Janet Kelly [review]
In her searing novel, "The Colour of Walls", Janet Kelly writes about child abuse and incest with clarity and understanding. The subject matter alone is disturbing, and the sense of cyclical hopelessness is both enduring and arresting. Still, Kelly brings us to a faintly optimistic resolution. This somewhat redeems an otherwise bleakly realistic story.
