finally, the books from my last BookDepository order started to arrive today. actually, i got another surprise from the mail earlier, when my posters arrived from AllPosters.com, but that's a whole different thing.
anyway, back to the book i was talking about, it's called «Live Through This: On Creativity and Self-destruction», by Sabrina Chapadjiev, and this is the product description from the Amazon.co.uk website:
"In a collection of original stories, essays, artwork and photography, Nan Goldin, Eileen Myles, bell hooks and other curring edge artists explore their use of art to survive abuse, madness, incest, depression and the impulse towards self-destruction. The diverse array of contributors - novelists, poets, cartoonists, artists, photographers, dancers, playwrights and burlesque performers - traverse the pains and passions that can both motivate and destroy women artists."
