Autobiography of a Face by Lucy Grealy
English | September 27th, 1994 | ASIN: B004H1UEO0, ISBN: 0544837398 | 260 Pages | EPUB | 2.45 MB


This powerful memoir is about the premium we put on beauty and on a woman's face in particular. It took Lucy Grealy twenty years of living with a distorted self-image and more than thirty reconstructive procedures before she could come to terms with her appearance after childhood cancer and surgery that left her jaw disfigured. As a young girl, she absorbed the searing pain of peer rejection and the paralyzing fear of never being loved.
