The Yellow Wallpaper, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Gabrielle Dubois
Depression, insanity, they're not my favorite subjects. So why did I buy this short story? Because the bookseller recommended it to me... and she did the right thing, this book is a masterpiece!

She has it published under the pseudonym Olivia. In my 1949 edition, the name Dorothy Bussy is not even mentioned.
