I couldn't cry when daddy died by Iris Galey

Paperback, 1986, 169pages, good condition, tanning pages

"Frau Dresden, our German housekeeper, offered me an apple after the funeral.
I couldn't stand the smell of Cox's Orange Pippins, because my father had blown his brains out, up there, in the attic where the apples were stored for winter.
I was fourteen and he had done it because of me."

Thus begins a courageous and sensitive personal story of survival as a victim of incest.
Almost no attention has been paid to this "final taboo" in writing. Recent studies indicate that incest is a far more common occurrence than society as a whole has ever conceded, but the women victims held in the grip of their shame and horror have had little encouragement to share their painful secret.
Here then is one woman's brave testimony told with honesty and feeling, of her awful betrayal and the nightmare journey that life became as a result.
But this story is not just one of despair, it is a story of insperation and hope.
