Stranger Than Fiction

I took an Anne Perry book down from the shelf, A book about "Monk" and his memory loss, I have always thought "Monk" is Perry herself, I believe she has placed her guilt "albatross", That of the long-ago matricide itself, Around "Monk's" neck, thus transferring her own cross Onto this man whose past has been forgotten, Because Perry's own past is somewhat rotten.* *"Anne Perry" is the pseudonym of Juliet Hulme, who, with Pauline Parker, murdered Parker's mother in June 1954 (New Zealand). The film "Heavenly Creatures" tells the story of the murder - Wikipedia. November 10 2019 "8 Lines of Rhyme" Tania Kirchin
