And look deep into your heart where it spreads its roots, the answer, and ask yourself, must I write?'I'm not going to lie - it helped me out, better so than for Igby. Who hates it, but still bares an uncanny resemblance to Holden Caulfield. Anyway, here she is in a dress made out of raw meat but contains no real substance:
