Tell me that you love me junie moon
Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon by Marjorie KelloggI first read this book many years ago as a teenager when I found it on my grandmothers bookshelf. I remembered it fondly as being a weird story about mental patients living together, but couldnt remember the title. Recently, I posted an inquiry on the subreddit /tipofmytongue and someone provided the title, Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon. Even with the title it took some tracking down until I found a used copy.
My second read as an adult was disappointing. I was surprised to learn that the three main characters werent mental patients as I had remembered them, but in the hospital for other physical problems. Warren is a run-of-the-mill paraplegic, Arthur has jerks and spasms, and the titular character, Junie Moon, has acid burns. While, the backstory of each of the characters offers some trauma it barely serves to explain why they act and talk like they are retarded throughout the book. I found it to be rather off-putting to read in a more modern era where we tend to view people with disabilities as *gasp* normal and socially adjusted.
Another issue I had with the narrative was the constant head-hopping into whatever background character wandered into frame. The author provides unnecessary backstory for bit characters like hospital staff and even animals, like a vagrant dog. This slows things down and detracts from really getting inside the main characters.
Finally, the ending was terrible. I wont spoil it, but I will just say that it was abrupt, false and emotionally manipulative.

It succeeds, among other things, in making human entertainment out of a rather unlikely story. Preminger's on so many talk shows these days that you probably know the story better than I do, but anyway: It's about the efforts of three handicapped people to build a new life together. Liza Minnelli has been scarred on the face and arm by acid. Ken Howard suffers strange psychosomatic seizures. Robert Moore is a homosexual paraplegic.
