Oh Dare Wright, where have you been all my life?

A fashion model, Wright lived with her overbearing and controlling mother for her whole life. And then some time in the late 1950s, she started writing and illustrating children’s books called The Lonely Doll, that featured creepy scenes of her favorite doll in various scenarios. There’s a biography that’s been written about her that we all need to drop everything and run out and buy, now. Let’s all meet back here in a couple of weeks once we’ve had time to read it, ok?
