Eleanor Oliphant is perfectly fine, Gail Honeyman.

There are days when I feel so lightly connected to the earth that the threads that tether me to the planet are gossamer thin, spun sugar. A strong gust of wind could dislodge me completely, and I’d lift off and blow away, like one of those seeds in a dandelion clock.

Eleanor lives on her own and keeps to herself. If you ask, she’ll answer you properly that “she’s perfectly fine”.
