Autobiography of A FaceeBook - 1994
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.

Part of the job of being human is to consistently underestimate our effect on other people.
