  1. I have a difficult relationship with Zelda. She was a drunk (I’m only allowed to say that because I am as well) and mentally unstable (yes), though certainly not deserving of the treatment she deserved. And how many people remember how she died? Horrific.

    But was she a great to be obsessed over? Never given a chance given her environment. Her novel is quite good. Better than some of her husband’s short stories. She possessed discipline – that’s what breaks my heart. Her hours of dance practice I see as both bottomless potential and a flight from the life she was living.
