Why ‘The Incest Diary’ is creating such a stir

Alexis Kirschbaum, Bloomsbury’s publishing director in the UK, describes the book as “the most disturbing book [she’s] ever read” and admitted “some people are very uncomfortable with this book and some publishers are worried they would be complicit if they made it public”.
But she defended the book, which some argue “fetishises female misery”, saying it is “incredibly beautifully written”


Incest memoir ‘a work of art’


The author, apparently in her 40s, writes that her father first abused her when she was three, that their sexual relationship lasted into her 20s, and that her mother and other family members were aware of it.
