Skin Game

by Caroline Kettlewell - £7.99  St Martin's Griffin (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780312263935 | ISBN 10: 0312263937

As a young girl - smart, creative, well loved by her family - Caroline Kettlewell made a terrible discovery: the only way to gain relief from her overpowering feelings of self-consciousness, discomfort and alienation was to physically hurt herself. She began cutting her arms and legs in fifth grade, and continued into her twenties. Why would such an intelligent young woman resort to such extreme measures? The first former cutter to tell her own story about living with and overcoming the disorder, Caroline Kettlewell has written an unforgettably poignant and shocking memoir of affliction and survival.
