In My Skin: A Memoir by Kate Holden

Called Quite simply in a class of its own . . . the work of astunningly talented writer who both graces and surpasses her material(Guardian), this is the frank, harrowing, and true story of one youngwomans descent into heroin addiction and prostitution and the long,arduous struggle to redeem her life that made her stronger. A shy, bookishcollege graduate from a solid middle-class home, Kate Holden was uncertainof her way in life. When she decided to try her first hit of heroin as aone-time adventure with friends, she did not anticipate that the drug wouldtake over. She lost her job and apartment and stole from her family.Desperation drove her first to offer her body on the streets and then inhigh-class brothels, where she discovered hidden strengths as well as partsof herself that frightened her. With the acceptance and unyielding love ofa family that never abandoned her, Kate Holden ultimately defeated the drugand left her netherworld behind.
