"What is REAL" asked the Rabbit one day...[...] "It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept." From The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams Bianco
The Velveteen Daughter is an award-winning novel by Laurel Davis Huber telling the true story of Margery Williams, the author of The Velveteen Rabbit and her daughter Pamela Bianco, a world-renowned child prodigy artist whose early fame takes a terrible toll on her mind. At its core, this is a mother-daughter story which explores in detail the uneasy balance between inspiration and hallucination as struggles with severe depressions and obsessions. Events take place between 1910-1977 against the backdrop of the glamorous art world of Europe and New York, with key characters including Eugene O'Neill (Pamela's cousin), the writer Richard 'Diccon' and Pablo Picasso, an early mentor to Pamela.
