paperback    ISBN 13: 9780285637498 | ISBN 10: 0285637495

This masterpiece of psychological writing is sure to be hailed as a contemporary classic. Carla spends a summer night sitting by her father's bed, his gun on her knees.
When he wakens she will get retribution for the childhood he has stolen from her and her mind, which he has destroyed.
As she realises the full horror of her life and despair, she relives the years of loneliness, self-disgust and pain she has endured.
Exploring the troubled mind of a brutalised teenager and the violent, abusive intimacy of a daughter and her father, If I Should Die Before I Wake depicts Carla's disintegrating world with an unforgettable intensity. Michelle Morris has written a literary classic about the fundamental taboo of our society, incest.
