Coming Undone [9781786896780]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A powerful, raw and unflinchingly honest account of a life come undone.

To everyone else, Terri White appeared to be living the dream, named one of Folio's Top Women in US Media and accruing further awards for the magazines she was editing.

In reality, she was rapidly skidding towards a mental health crisis that would land her in a locked psychiatric ward as her past caught up with her.

As well as growing up in a household in poverty, Terri endured sexual and physical abuse at the hands of a number of her mother's partners.

Her success defied all expectations, but the greater the disparity between her outer achievements and inner demons, the more she struggled to hold everything together.

Coming Undone is Terri's documentation of her unravelling, and her precarious navigation back from a life in pieces.

'Coming Undone by Terri White is possibly the most affecting, moving memoir I've ever read. Painful and exquisite, her writing about how childhood trauma shaped her got to me in a very visceral way. It's a remarkable book' - Marian Keyes

'A stunning memoir, hard reading in places, but it feels urgent and necessary . . . There can be beauty in reckoning with our damage on the page; this is White's achievement. The ugliness of what has happened to her has been transformed' - Cathy Rentzenbrink, The Times


AUTHOR: Terri White is Editor-in-Chief of Empire magazine, having previously edited some of the most read titles in the UK and US, including Time Out New York and Shortlist, where she was named Men's Magazine Editor of the Year. She has also written for the Guardian and the Pool. @Terri_White
