9780091917272: Perfect: Anorexia & Me

Emily Halban developed anorexia in her final year of high school. She went on to college at an Ivy League school where her disease took on a powerful dimension. By her final year she was so debilitated that she had to take her exams in a separate room where she could be fed continuously. With heartbreaking candor and poignant intimacy, Emily vividly chronicles the complexities and inner struggles of living with anorexia. She traces her disease from its elusive origins, through its darkest moments of deprivation, guilt, and self-loathing. As she recounts her journey towards recovery, Emily draws us into her raw experience of anorexia, exposing its secrets and dispelling some of the myths that shroud it. Beautifully written and alive with self-awareness, but never self-pity, this inspiring read will offer those battling with this all-consuming disease a glimpse of perspective and hope, and help those on the outside to understand more.

Review:

"...allows a glimpse into the mindset of an anorexic" Glamour "A brave, brilliant and beautifully written memoir" -- Vicki Edgson "Compellling" Easy Living "There have been many books on the subject of anorexia but this is the first that I have read that both moved me to tears AND gave me the tools to help anyone around me who might suffer from this consuming demon. This book will give hope and help to both sufferers of anorexia and, just as importantly, those who are close to them. A brilliant read and a great, great help." -- Susie Forbes (Editor) Easy Living
