In Search of a Salve: Memoir of a Sex Addict
In Search of a Salve is the written personification of what it means to stare the truth of yourself in the mirror and accept it wholeheartedly. In stories tender and raw, KE Garland invites readers on the journey of her life as she discovered herself, her sexuality, and subsequent sex addiction.
No topic is too taboo or off limits; from the sexual assaults she suffered as a child to the exhibitionism displayed and multiple abortions she had as an adult. Garland weaves the seedy and secretive world of a sex addict with her words removing the erotic and replacing it with the reality of what it means to live a double life; lying to and cheating on the ones you love.
But like anyone wanting to see the other side of addiction, Garland had to do the necessary work to put her urges in perspective and her desires in check. In Search of a Salve is the memoir of someone who’s spent years excavating her interior; rooting out what never belonged and pouring in all that she needed to live courageously bold, honest, and healing.
