From Publishers Weekly:

Even after the book and the film The Three Faces of Eve broke records in the late 1950s, the identity of "Eve" was kept secret and little was known about multiple personality disorder (MPD). Subsequent publications, The Final Face of Eve and I'm Eve --both written by Sizemore in collaboration with professionals--told more of the story Sizemore augments here. Retracing her life from birth in 1927 in Virginia, the author makes one understand the "persons" who took turns submerging her until she ultimately mastered the intruders, asserting "the mind of my own." Sizemore gives credit to the therapists who helped, but none more than her husband and children, described here as miracles of "devotion, commitment," which readers will agree may be an understatement. The author has been publicly active on behalf of the mentally/emotionally ill since her recovery in 1977. Literary Guild alternate; film rights to Sissy Spacek.

From Library Journal:

Subject of the well-known book and movie, The Three Faces of Eve, and co-author of I'm Eve , Sizemore has written a spellbinding account of her life since her recovery from multiple-personality disorder. With remarkable candor, she describes the obstacles she overcame to achieve success in personal relationships and in professional endeavors, which included a public speaking career advocating understanding for mental illnesses. She also developed her painting talents. While her focused style contrasts remarkably with the fragmentation of a similar work, When Rabbit Howls ( LJ 6/15/87), her references to former selves in the third person is somewhat unnerving. And her discussion of her psychic experiences, plus allusions to reincarnation, "possession," and the occult, will undoubtably evoke controversy. A fascinating, riveting story.
