I want to read a book where someone goes slowly insane, or something of the like, with limited supernatural elements. Or where someone is psychologically manipulating another person. Diary by Chuck Klosterman, for instance, is my favorite book. Any suggestions?

If you haven't read it, you have to check out the novella "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.  Classic story of a woman going slowly insane.
