An autobiographical work of poetry and confession by an author with multiple personalities.
Retort: In all fairness, I only walk people through about 18 of my "residents", 17 of whom have been bit by the poetry bug ;) The other one expressed himself in comics. The original intention was to create a poetry book, so the other 54 abstained or have nothing to add to the book directly. --The Crisses
I just started the book today, and I already have some answers as to why I am the way that I am. Thank you for writing this book. -- Anonymous Reader re: Poetic License.
"Reading The Crissing Link is a very intense, mind-bending journey! It helped open my eyes to a totally different multi-faceted view of the world. While the prose is raw and edgy as the Crisses bear all without apology; the poetry is rhythmic and filled with beauty and soul searching. Definitely an interesting read for someone unfamiliar with 'multiplicity'. " -- "BA Loves Reading" re: Poetic License (on Amazon).
I am currently reading this book. It's interesting and thought provoking. I find myself both relating a lot, being surprised, and wondering. I very much recommend it for people with DID, singletons, and anyone who has magic in their soul. -- Sarah Smith, author of In and Out of Ice/Glass: Living with Dissociative Identity Disorder and Chemical Dependency
Intense. This book really makes you think about things you'd rather not, in ways you have not thought about them before. Cover-to-cover, it compels you to continue until finished, but still leaves you with a lot of questions. Accept it as real or not, but you'll never take anyone at face value again. Kudos to The Crisses for their courage. -- "Thoughtful Reader" re: Poetic License (on Amazon).
I finished your book; it's something Ive been waiting for. Finally I have a much clearer view of what Im going through. Ive been and continue to be misunderstood, even by my own self. I cant explain why Im one way or the other, I dont think I have a full picture but I can say that with this book Im on my way to understanding myself. It was very hard for me to live thinking I was the only one feeling or even thinking the way that I do. I just want to thank you for sharing your knowledge with the world. -- "U." via private email re: Poetic License.
