Wasted: A story of anorexia and bulimia

Wasted is a ture story of anorexia and bulimia. It is not a memoir of the author’s life.

Why would a talented young woman enter into a torrid affair with hunger, drugs, sex, and death? Via 5 lengthy hospital stays, endless therapy, and also the loss of loved ones, friends, jobs, and all sense of what it indicates to be “normal,” Marya Hornbacher lovingly embraced her anorexia and bulimia and her selection to seek out her way back on her personal terms.

Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia by Marya Hornbacher isn’t an easy book to read, not mainly because the author makes the subject she is talking about complex, rather it is a brutally honest picture into a life governed by eating, puking, starving, consuming, starving, puking, a vicious in which there seems to become no escape.

About the Author:
Marya Hornbacher is the author of this Pulitzer Prize-nominated national bestseller book which remains an intensely read classic, and the acclaimed novel The Center of Winter. She lectures nationally on writing and mental health and lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

It is a great book for me. The anorexia story is helpful for me. BTW, it is cheaper to buy the kindle rather than nook version, if anyone cares.

This is an excellent book. Anyone who has ever been there will be able to relate. And maybe, just maybe, someone who has not been there and reads this book, will think twice about going there.

Overall, I felt that this story of anorexia and bulimia was a worthwhile read. I would definitely recommend the book to therapists, family members of those with eating disorders, and others who are likely to come in contact with those experiencing eating disorders,. However, to those who actually have or have had an eating disorder, this book might not be the best one for you. Overall, it is a book about anorexia and bulimia patient’s life, but not about the treatment of it.
