Praise

“I read a book called A Bright Red Scream, and read about people’s emotional release that comes with the cutting. It’s a very complicated issue, and if anyone’s curious, I highly recommend that book, because it’s beautifully written and people are so candid.” —Amy Adams, in Entertainment Weekly on her role in Sharp Objects

“A compelling tour of the trauma and science of self-injury” —Time

A Bright Red Scream is thick with scientific studies, up-to-date research and—most important—tender . . . portraits of real-life cutters.” —New York Post
 
“Riveting and dynamically written, this book is an important addition to psychological literature.” —Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)

“An imporessive complement to Mary Pipher’s bestselling explication of the woes of adolescent girls, Reviving Ophelia.” —Booklist

A Bright Red Scream has the hallmark of a classic work on a topic that [is] impossible to ignore.”  —San Diego Tribune
