Reviews

"A painful but wonderfully written memoir that should create greater awareness of a bizarre disorder... Keen self-awareness, a sharp eye for details, and an original, poetic voice." --Kirkus Reviews "This story of unfathomable child abuse is told with remarkable wit, compassion, and courage. It's a work of beauty from a beast of a childhood." --Augusten Burroughs, author of Running with Scissors and Dry "Like some Diane Arbus photograph come to life, Julie Gregory's Sickened offers us a portrait of quintessential American Disturbos in all their tender, heinous can't-look-and-can't-look-away glory. A miraculous book by a woman whose very survival is itself a miracle." --Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight "Set in a southern-culture-on-the-skids world reminiscent of J.T. Leroy, Sickened is written with a lyrical directness that is both riveting and horrific. Julie Gregory reminds us that those who find the courage to slay the dragons of their past and stop the cycle of abuse are the true heroes of the world." --Ann Magnuson, actress, singer, writer "A stunning account by a courageous woman who journeyed from the depths of hell to reclaim her own power and worth. Julie Gregory casts an extraordinary beacon of healing. You will be hearing a lot about this one." --Alan Cohen, author of I Had It All the Time "A born storyteller with perfect pitch, Julie Gregory guides the reader through this surreal form of cruelty, in which the ultimate weapon is the scalpel, with originality, gusto and heart-stopping courage." --Sylvia Fraser, author of My Father's House: A Memoir of Incest and of Healing "Gripping self-disclosure by a remarkable young woman . . . Sickened will surely and finally impact the proper diagnosis and treatment of children caught in the terror of MBP." --Chris Monaco, Ph.D., Director, Childhelp USA National Child Abuse Hotline "This searing and beautiful memoir represents a genuine triumph of the human spirit." --Marc D. Feldman, M.D. From the Hardcover edition.
