depression, self injury, eating disorders and general misery
"This is not an 'easy-read novel', more a case history of Susanna Kaysen's true life as she gets admitted to a mental institute. The film is loosely based on this original text."
Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America - A Memoir
"One of the first good books I read about mental illness. A good read, but often a little hard to keep your concentration. An introduction to the world of Prozac."
Because I Remember Terror, Father, I Remember You (Associated Writing Programs Award for Creative Nonfiction)
"FANTASTIC!! A heart-wrenching true account of a childhood filled with sexual abuse, incest, rape and misery, and the eventual recovery in adulthood."
Disconnected (Collins Flamingo)
"A true story of a young girl trying to find herself amidst depression, loneliness and parental pressure. Written as a series of letters to people in her life."
"Better than the film version, as it allows your imagination to create it's own impression of the four sisters whose fragile lives fall apart"
My Father's House: A Memoir of Incest and of Healing: Memoir of Incest and Healing
"An intimate true story of abuse and incest, as Sylvia Fraser recounts her childhood as two different girls, one the normal self, one, a girl who does things the other is too scared and ashamed to do."
Cut (Collins Flamingo)
"A quiet, under-stated story of an American girl's admission to a mental institute after the discovery of her self-harming behaviours."
Stop Pretending: What happened when my big sister went crazy
"Written as a series of poems inspired by the author's life, this is a sensitive incite into the lives of a family living with nightmare of mental illness."
Skin Game: A Memoir
"A true story of a young girl's journey through the torments of a depressed childhood. It follows her path through cutting, and on to her recovery as she overcomes the addiction of self injury."
My Hungry Hell: What it's Really Like to be Anorexic - A Personal Story
"A graphic look into the world of anorexia, as we are taken back to the author's hospitalisation for the disease."
"A fantastic look at the life of eating disorders! Very personal and absorbing! A must-read!!!"
"A FANTASTIC book. Made me laugh hysterically and then sob for over an hour. It tells the story of a sister's downward spiral into drug-induced schizophrenia."
"I was really touched by this book, especially as it's a true story! Torey Hayden is amazing!"
"Another amazing true-life book by Torey Hayden about an abused child!"
Toxic Parents; Overcoming Their Hurtful Legacy and Reclaiming Your Life
"A very informative and useful book for anyone with 'toxic' parents!"
I Never Told Anyone: Writings by Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse
"A very touching and interesting book which tells the stories of numerous survivors of sexual abuse."
"This could be fact rather than fiction. A very absorbing story of madness, love and obsession. A very good read."
