I'm Eve The compelling story of the internationally famous case of multiple personality Author:Chris Costner Sizemore Book Club Edition — After many years and many lifetimes of silence, Chris Costner Sizemore has decided to tell the full story of her most extraordinary past . . . — She was "Eve" of "The Three Faces of Eve" . . . the woman whose classic case of multiple personality--described in books, articles, and movies--captured the world's imagination. But sh... more »e has never before revealed in print the complete, unvarnished truth about her own life, as she lived it . . .
Included here are many crucial but hitherto unknown details of her childhood and two marriages--as well as the startling fact that "Eve" was not then cured of her illness, as previous versions of her case have reported. Her personality continued to fragment until three years ago, producing in all more than twenty separate "beings"--"strangers" in her body . . . Here you will learn what it was like to endure the trauma of split-second changes in personality, often in mid-sentence; to answer for actions that one has no memory of committing; to struggle constantly for psychic survival against forces that one hardly dares to admit are real. And you will also learn what it was like to conquer such an illness--for in recent years Chris Sizemore has broken through her terror and loneliness to seek the truly integrated personality she had always been denied.
This book was part of her therapy, and its raw, utterly candid self-portrait is a unique record of one woman's unbelievable nightmare and rare personal courage. By turns shocking, terrifying, and inspiring, it sheds fascinating new light on a strange phenomenon that has never been fully analyzed or explained. . .« less
