Live Through This: On Creativity and Self-Destruction

by Sabrina Chap

In a collection of original stories, essays, artwork, and photography, cutting-edge artists like Nan Goldin, Eileen Myles, bell hooks, and more explore their use of art to survive madness, abuse, incest, depression, and the impulse toward self-destruction that manifest in eating disorders, cutting, addiction, and contemplation of suicide.

With a firm gaze, the book confronts the brutality many women and girls encounter in the world around them throughout their lives, and bravely takes as its subject the often misunderstood violence they sometimes inflict upon themselves.
