Beyond Ugly

Beyond Ugly
Author: Constance Briscoe
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton, 238 pages

IN Ugly, Constance Briscoe described a childhood spent being beaten, starved and verbally abused by her own mother. Beyond Ugly continues Briscoe’s story, in particular exploring how Briscoe was deeply affected by her mother’s constant derogatory comments about her looks.

Although Briscoe is a brilliant student and is resourceful enough to put herself through university, she is unable to accept that she is ugly and her part-time jobs also finance plastic surgery. Nevertheless, she earns her law degree and is offered a place in prestigious chambers. Unfortunately, she does not receive the support she craves there, and so her struggle to find love and acceptance continues.
