    I'm glad somebody besides me liked "I Put A Spell On You". Many fans have criticized it for being a depressing recount of Nina's unhealthy relationship patterns, but it's an honest depiction of what she was going through. I don't know what people expect.

    It is definitely clear from the book that she had a persistent tormenting feeling of "otherness" throughout her life, which seemed to create a lot of problems for her ("Break Down and Let It All Out" gets into her bipolar outbursts, apparently).

    I like to think that the isolation she felt contributed to the intense emotion in her songs. Maybe her eclectic style is a product of her never completely settling into any particular relationship/genre/setting, or maybe feeling a bit but never completely at home just about everywhere both tormented her and made her great. I dunno, like ducky_duck, I love her more after reading it. It's an easy and short book...like 100 pages or something.
