        I've had Scar Tissue on my wishlist for what must be 5 years now, it always slipped me by when shopping on Amazon and I never really bothered to part with the small fee. In hindsight, I can't believe I neglected purchasing this excellent book for so long. I'm a self confessed lover of auto-biographies and this did not disappoint/5(K).   At pages or so, this is a slow, bloated book, and a far cry from the exceptional The Gypsy’s Curse. I wanted to like Scar Lover, and at first I wasn’t disappointed. Initially, this seemed to me to be a gritty, harrowing read quite unlike the breezy Body. The first part of the novel was excellent.

      Harry Crews (). “Scar Lover”, p, Simon and Schuster 54 Copy quote. I never wanted to be well-rounded. I do not admire well-rounded people nor their work. So far as I can see, nothing good in the world has ever been done by well-rounded people. Writing a book is like torture that you don't know, but after it's done and there it. Get all wrapped up in a classic story and show some literary love with these bookish infinity scarves.

Then these infinity scarves by Tori Tissell are the perfect way /5().
