I started reading Karen Joy Fowler's We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves the other day, and I had the weird feeling that I've read or seen representations of some of the action before. For example, there's a cafeteria scene where the narrator gets arrested because, basically, she reacted when someone else started trashing the place.
It feels like I've seen that in a movie or something. I wonder if someone told me about it, or I heard something from it on NPR or something?
I don't remember reading the novel. It's not that old, so it's not something I read 20 years ago and don't quite remember.
