Ho scritto questo libro perché credo che alcune persone ci si riconosceranno. L'ho scritto perché non sono d'accordo con quasi tutto quello che si sostiene a proposito dei disordini alimentari. L'ho scritto perché spesso le persone considerano il disordine alimentare una manifestazione di vanità, pazzia e immaturità. E, in un certo senso, è tutte queste cose insieme. Ma è anche una dipendenza; una risposta, per quanto perversa, alla cultura, alla famiglia, e a se stessi.

I've put off reviewing this book for some time on account of the fact Marya's both a friend and the editor of my novel, Hunger for Life . But having reminded myself that I read the book long before Marya and I became friends, and that it meant a great to me even before we got to know one another, I t Leggi tutto
Possibly the finest auto-biography I have ever read. People who have suffered from EDs will complain that this book is packed full of triggers, but so is America's Next Top Model, and I can't say anything about the quality of THAT writing. This book is a genuine, gripping story of a youth literally
eta : i think it's important to note that this book was first published in 1998 - when things like tumblr did not exist. for a generation that learned to get all information from books, this book was the key to tricks and tips for anorexia. not that you couldn't figure them out for yourself, but if y Leggi tutto
I read this book when it was first released ---(its 'very' disturbing). I wouldn't know how many stars to give it actually. I never like to 'rate' memoirs in the first place. I can't give it 5 stars --I can't give it 1 star ---(so I went for 3) ----but I'll never forget the story. Eating disorders a Leggi tutto
3.5 stars I once had an eating disorder several years ago, so I appreciate Marya Hornbacher's unflinching honesty in Wasted . She holds nothing back in this memoir, sharing the immense pain that accompanies anorexia and bulimia: the preoccupation with calories that takes over your life, the obsession Leggi tutto
It would be tacky to put this on my "food" shelf, wouldn't it? But I did get so hungry while reading it that I got up and made spaghetti carbonara. It was delicious. So this is a memoir of the author's ten-year struggle with bulimia and anorexia. I found it different from other works I've read on eat Leggi tutto
Marya is a fantastic fucking memoirist. There are a couple reasons this is all the more incredible: First, that she'd found such a voice and command of prose at 23, and second, that a 23 year-old would have lived a life worth writing about. The language is appropriately jagged, with short, sharp sen Leggi tutto
Edited to add disclaimer. PLEASE err on the side of extreme caution if you are recovering from ED or were planning to share this book with a young person who may be in a vulnerable position. As someone who has struggled from an ED myself, I can say that this book contains many things that could trig Leggi tutto
I'm ambivalent about this book. Certainly, at times, she pulled no punches...yet at other times, still a bit under the sway of her disorder, she seemed to be bragging about her "successes" in the extremes of her eating disorder. She wasn't really healthy yet, and that came through in ways she probab Leggi tutto
My relationship with this book is love/hate. It kind of reminds me of Prozac Nation in the sense that the first couple chapters about her average middle-class childhood are pretty boring and pointless. She tries to describe every little bad thing that happened to her like she is the only one in the
