Autobiography of a Face

Author(s): Lucy Grealy

Biography

A New York Times Notable Book -This is a young woman's first book, the story of her own life, and both book and life are unforgettable.- --New York Times -Engaging and engrossing, a story of grace as well as cruelty, and a demonstration of [Grealy's] own wit and style and class.---Washington Post Book World 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.
