Breakfasters: Why Bodily Scars Are Beyond Skin Deep

Lee Kofman’s new book, Imperfect: How our bodies shape the people we become, explores how people with bodily scars navigate and internalise a world where physical appearance is everything. As someone with her own scars, Lee shares what it’s like to feel the gaze of onlookers trace her trauma and the existential kind of anxiety that this creates.
