    Go Ask Ogre: Letters from a Deathrock Cutter (Jolene Siana, Bonnie McLaughlin)

    Rate this media item:

    • When she was 17, Siana wrote a series of letters to punk rocker Ogre, the front man of the ’80s band Skinny Puppy. The letters speak of depression and cutting, drug abuse and sex, music and poetry. At one concert, Ogre told her that he saved all her letters and one day would return them. True to his word, two boxes arrived at her door nine years later; inside were illustrated letters and journals filled with her most intimate thoughts and fears. Like most cutters, those who injure themselves as a physical manifestation of their inner pain, Siana felt powerless as her life spun out of control. Rereading the letters years later, she realized that expressing herself through this way had saved her life. The letters share what it’s like to grow up weird and how one girl could rise above her background. Almost every page of the book is filled with heartbreaking artwork and photos, which brilliantly link the journal entries and letters together, allowing readers to get a look inside the mind of a very creative but disturbed young woman. At the end of the book is a letter from Siana’s therapist and a list of resources for teenagers who may be experiencing the same problems and emotions that the author wrote about.
