A Room Called Earth by Madeleine Ryan

Madeleine Ryan takes us through her world for one night. Her perspective makes a lot of sense. She starts getting ready for a party and deciding what to wear. Her inner world carries us through each encounter until she meets and connects with someone. She takes him home and dances in the rain ““Dancing in the rain doesn’t “make sense” and it doesn’t have a specific “outcome.”” But it does and the book is delightful. She breeds Ulysses butterflies, perhaps a metaphor for her intellectual brilliance, guile, and versatility. The story ends with goodbye.
