From Publishers Weekly:

Sexually abused as a child by her sadistic father, Elizabeth Katherine Castle fissured into multiple personalities--seven or eight in all, according to this dizzying, not altogether credible profile. As mousy "Liz," living in Texas, she married, nearly ax-murdered her three children and got evicted from her apartment. Then, as "Kitty," she began pulling in $800 a week as a stripper. As vivacious, artistic "Penny Lavender," she took the second of three husbands, but her life kept dividing among her warring selves. These included "Me-Liz," a spiritual do-gooder; "Jess," a teenage boy with a crush on Kitty; two infant egos; and "Michael," an "inner helper" who facilitated the integration of her fractured psyche. This strange case involves psychic phenomena: beings of light, poltergeist-like activity, and Michael himself, who, it is argued, might have been an otherworldly spirit-guide. Bechtel, a journalist who conducted interviews with Castle, re-creates her journey through hell, interweaving the testimonies of friends and loved ones. Photos.

From Library Journal:

Like Eve before her, the subject of this book was shattered into multiple personalities--four adult women, two infant girls, and a teenage boy--by horrific childhood experiences. Here she describes her regeneration with the help of a psychiatrist--and a spirit guide. Readers remain intrigued by the numerous painful, touching accounts of multiple personality syndrome that have been published recently, so consider this.
