Book Read: What Was She Thinking? [Notes on a Scandal]
Author: Zoe Heller
I'd seen the movie Notes on a Scandal starring Judi Dench as Barbara, the dreary, sad history teacher, and Cate Blanchett as Sheba, the younger, pretty art teacher, but the book, of course, delved deeper into the diary Barbara kept and the pathetic little life she led. If ever the phrase "get a life" was appropriate, this is it.
