When I was working as a cashier at a small grocery store in college, we had a tiny book section and "Michelle Remembers" was one of the paperbacks always for sale there.
I was fascinated with it, and when business was slow or I was shopping for myself I would often flip through it. It was one of the first of those "I am suddenly remembering that I was horribly, freakishly, SATANICALLY abused as a child, and let me describe the horrors for you in slow, excruciating, savory detail."
Now I feel pretty appalled that I ever touched the book, but when you're a suburban kid whose life is pretty good, there's some forbidden fruit aspect to reading about lives that seem like yours at first but then take a nosedive straight into the pits of hell. My niece, who has just about the perfect teen life, was fascinated with the abuse memoirs of Dave Pelzer.
Anyway, these days, the accuracy of both "Michelle Remembers" and Dave Pelzer have been questioned, and it seems clear that "Michelle Remembers" was used to whip on some of the satanic ritual-abuse frenzy of the 1980s. I feel pretty disturbed that I ever picked it up, actually.
