A ?retired career anorexic? examines herself and her and our culture in a masterpiece of confessional literature. At the age of four Marya Hornbacher looked in a mirror and decided she was fat. At nine, she was bulimic. At twelve, she was anorexic. By the time she was eighteen, she?d been hospitalized five times, once in the loony bin. Her doctors and her parents had given up on her they were watching her die. But Marya decided to live. Four years on, now 22, here is her harrowing tale, powerfully told in a virtuoso mix of memoir, cultural criticism and psychological examination. Here is the amazingly articulate fury of a clever woman made stupid by her culture, who threw away her teenage years in a continuous cycle of bingeing and vomiting or just plain starvation. The first book to explore, from the inside, the intimate relationship between eating disorders and 1990s culture?s historically unprecedented obsession with body, diet and gender not a testimony to a miracle cure, but the story of one woman?s travels to the darker side of reality and her decision to find her way back on her own terms.
