    Of all the good memoirs out there that never make it into print,

    Of all the good memoirs out there that never make it into print, how in the world did this one make it? I skimmed it because I wanted in the worst way for Emma to face up to the truth... to find her Self. To do so, she would have had to face the underlying reason for her self-destructive behavior in the form of cutting, bulimia, promiscuity, suicide attempts. And that is not to mention losing her Self in every relationship and then being completely bereft when he leaves her. The one moment... just the one... is what kept me reading the book, to give her every chance to come clean with her Self, her counselor, her parents, and her readers. It is the moment when she is confronted with the knowledge that her cutting could be a sign of abuse in her childhood. She steers around that, and has herself believing it all started when she was sixteen when she was raped. I am not a counselor, but I know the signs all too well. She is a classic example of someone who identifies with the perpetrator. I, too, endured childhood abuse. I, too, developed bulimia. I know all too well how painful the healing process can be. But at some point, I faced that pain and I steered through it, not around. Thank goodness... I could have been stuck in this kind of insanity the rest of my life.

    If you want to get pulled into Emma Forrest's insanity, read this book. Otherwise spare yourself this and read a book that doesn't leave you feeling like you've just wasted your time.

    Fell in love...

    Curious, from the first few sentences I couldn't put this down. Since losing my son Aaron... age 20 to suicide, I continue to tear the world apart to find the answer that forever haunts me: why??? This gifted writer opens her veins and pours out things that most wouldn't dare to share. Painfull, i'm sure, but i'm glad she did.

    Very quick read....

    Recently read on planes to and around Europe (one of my vacation reads). Engaging, well written, Emma brings to light a topic that people shy away from discussing openly but which in fact is more common than people think. People suffer whether we think they should or not (I refer to the idea that she is from a caring well off background and she should be grateful for all that she has) and frankly unless you are in that person's mind, one can never comprehend that person's emotions and/or pain. As a memoir, it further entertains by a thorough account of an experience that many of us would not refuse...having an intense romantic affair with an attractive, charismatic public figure.

    Great book

    The content of this book may scare some people away, but it doesn't take away from Emma Forrest's amazing writing style. She does a great job at bringing a taboo subject to light in her familiar voice and style. If you like her other books as much as I do, definitely buy this one. I think this book is more special than her others because it's real.
