Format: Hardcover
Chris Costner Sizemore was born in 1927 North Carolina to a large, loving, but generally uneducated farming family who assumed that her childhood difficulties were willful. When an abusive marriage at last drove her into psychiatric care, she was diagnoised with what is commonly known as "split personality" or "multiple personality disorder." Her therapist of the time, Dr. Thigpen, noted three distinct personalities and his documentation of her case in lectures and films of his patient created a sensation in the medical community. Thigpen later wrote the book THE THREE FACES OF EVE; an instant bestseller, it was transformed into an Academy Award-winning film starring Joanne Woodward in 1957. Both book and film concluded with the patient's cure. Unfortunately for the real "Eve," nothing could have been further from the truth.

According to Sizemore, Thigpen repeatedly discouraged her from stating that she was "Eve," and when she did at last publish her own account of her illness the text was significantly edited by Thigpen himself. It was not until 1978 that she, working with family member and author Elen Sain Pittillo, wrote I'M EVE--a no-holds-barred account of her life and her illness. It proved a major best seller and prompted renewed interest in this relatively rare condition.

Written in the third person by Pittillo from Sizemore's notes, I'M EVE paints a picture of an intelligent, creative child whose awkwardness, sensitive nature was early impacted by a series of tragedies that both she and her subsequent therapists believe caused her "splinter" into multiple personalities.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is absolutely the best book I have ever read. Many people would ridicule the whole idea of fragmented personalities, but we know so little about the mind. This book takes the reader into the mind of Chris Sizemore, and also gives a view from her cousin, who saw strange things happening, but did not know what it was about. I saw the movie, "The Three Faces of Eve", years ago, and even then I was facinated by the idea of personality disorders. I have tried to find out if Chris Sizemore and Elen Pittillo are still living, but so far have found no information. I am so glad that this book was written, and I recommend it to everyone.

After reading this book, and reflecting back on the 1950's Joanne Woodward film "The Three Faces of Eve," one realizes Hollywood only tapped the surface. The true story would make for twice the screenplay we saw from the movie. What a way to experience life, not being able to control your true personality. And very well written too.

Format: Hardcover
Tho the writing is a little stilted and some of the 'horrors' Chris Costner had to endure were a little lame, I can understand that they were not, for her, of no consequence. The book gave a lot of understanding into how women were treated in the time period - and how poorly understood mental problems have been in the past, the very real dangers of admitting to mental problems, and having them treated by people who are more interested in publishing and ego pumping than in curing the afflicted.
While the book did not grip my interest firmly, it was an enjoyable book, informative and with things I did not know and found to be educational.

Excellent and very informative book! Physically, it was worn and the paper cover has completely fallen off, but that is to be expected since it's a pretty old book and I bought it used.
