In My Skin

ebook

An Australian memoir published to critical acclaim worldwide, In My Skin is the true story of Kate Holden's life as a prostitute and a heroin addict.

Kate was a nice middle-class girl: a dreamy bookworm, a classics scholar and an innocent. In this memoir she chronicles in frank and beautifully crafted prose her descent into drug addiction and then prostitution. She depicts the harsh honesty of the life she led in Melbourne's streets and brothels. The hardship and the friendships, the day to day struggle to survive. And she tells how, ultimately, she overcame her addiction to forge a new life for herself.

'Quite simply in a class of its own. In My Skin is the work of a stunningly talented writer who both graces and surpasses her material.' Guardian
