The Three Faces of Eve

£55.00

Product description

1992 revised edition of the classic work, first published in 1957. Blue and grey cloth board covers. No dustjacket. Very good condition throughout.

The Three Faces of Eve was a best-selling book that inspired a major motion picture. It is the true story of a young housewife who suffered from multiple personality disorder (MPD). Her psychiatrists, Corbett H. Thigpen and Hervey M. Cleckley of the Medical College of Georgia (later Georgia Health Sciences University) in Augusta, published the book in 1957, and the film adaptation was released that same year. Produced and directed by Nunnally Johnson, a Georgia native, the film featured another Georgian, Joanne Woodward, in the title role.

By today's standards, the book appears almost quaint and the film rather tame. This story, however, was a groundbreaker when it appeared. To understand its impact, one must consider the cultural climate of the United States following World War II (1941-45). Soldiers were returning home suffering from psychological distress, and the reality of the atomic bomb created unease among the general public.
