Why would a talented young girl go through the looking glass and step into a netherworld where up is down and food is greed, where death is honor and flesh is weak? Why enter into a love affair w/ hunger, drugs, sex and death? marya Hornbacher sustains both anorexia and bulimia through five lengthy hospitalizations, endless theraphy and the loss of family, friends, jobs and ultimately, any sense of what it means to be "normal". By the time she is in college, Hornbacher is in the grip of a bout w/ anorexia so horrifying that it will forever put to rest the romance of wasting away. in this vivid, emotionally wrenching memoir, she re-creates the experience and illuminates the tangle of personal, family and cultural causes underlying eating disorders.
