Trudi Chase is an apparently ordinary woman in her thirties. She visited a psychiatrist because she felt "unreal" and suffered from odd memory lapses. He discovered that she is inhabited by over ninety spirits, some aware of each other, some not. This book forms part of her attempt to come to terms with her separate selves and to reconcile them to each other. Her problems are apparently rooted in horrific childhood sexual abuse. Until she learns whether or not she killed the man who abused her, her therapy must continue. Her "troops" provide the narrative, when one voice tires, another takes over.
Good. Dust Cover Missing. Book shows minor use. Cover and Binding have minimal wear and the pages have only minimal creases. A tradition of southern quality and service. All books guaranteed at the Atlanta Book Company.
This book is difficult to read only because it is so unbelievable that these things really happened. More disturbing than Sybil and more fascinating than First Person Plural. Truddi Chase is an amazingly brave and strong woman who has overcome the unimaginable. When Rabbit Howls will stay with you long after you read it. I couldn't put it down and read it in one day! Truly incredible, a must read!

If you are interested in true stories then this is the book for you. Multiple emotions rolled into one book. Amazing that one person how one person deals with the emotional and physical trauma she was put through.
Publishers Weekly, 1987-04-10 Phillips, a Washington, D.C., therapist, explains that ``The Troops'' are the multiple personalitiesapproximately 80 men and womenof the pseudonymous Truddi Chase, who first consulted him in 1980. He further maintains that the patient, a successful businesswoman now in her 50s, has been ``asleep'' since she was raped at the age of two by her stepfather, who continued to sexually abuse her for 14 years. The cluster of personalities, speaking through a troop member dubbed the ``Recorder,'' talk about their suffering for the primary victim who, it is also revealed, was mistreated by her mother as well. There are sensational episodes described by beings identified as social Alvira, hard Nails, alert Gatekeeper and others. Although the novelistic overtones in the text strain credibility, the book nonetheless proves to be a convincing, affecting case study. Author Tour. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
