I've found a way to view Divided Soul on PDF file and I noticed that almost an entire chapter was devoted to Jewel Price. This was a woman Marvin sought to find a "much older, safer alternative" to Janis and Anna and that the two were great friends. Jewel was 18 years older than Marvin and she talked of him with great respect in the book.
I often wonder had Marvin stayed with Jewel more, would he still be alive? She seemed to be his protector in some ways. I feel that all throughout his life, Marvin was searching for a parental figure (his mother, as hard as she might've tried, really didn't protect him, judging from what was revealed in the book), not just fatherly but motherly. If only there was a way. *sigh*
What about you guys?
