Front Cover
Writers and Readers, 1995 - Abused women - 423 pages
"Interiors tells the story of one woman's trip to insanity and the journey back. This moving autobiography is the story not only of the suffering and recovery of an incest survivor, teenage mother, abused spouse, and public assistance recipient, but the story of all women who suffer. In this raw, uncensored commentary, Iyanla Vanzant takes an intimate look at the problems that afflict black women, the inner battle, the outward conflict, and the process of healing, from a wise black woman's perspective."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
