Time Not Wasted....

I'm adding Marya Hornbacher's superb memoir, Wasted to my list of all - time favorite books. Her incredible energetic way of opening up the twisted, tormented,and ( eating -) disordered - yet - oh - so -orderly world of bulimics and anorexics, took my breath away.A real tumble down the hole, a la Alice in Wonderland. I couldn't put this one down - nor did I want to! Now I've been asking myself if there's a sequel because I'd like to know what's become of Marya. Wasted would be of great help to those struggling to understand anorexia, bulimia, or other " food Issues" in their families or themselves.

Voyeurism

There might not be a clearer picture of self loathing and debasement than the one painted in this story. For those readers not struggling with eating disorders, this could give one a vivid picture of just what might be going on behind the doors in the home of your just-a-bit-too-skinny friend. For those of you that are personally dealing with or have personally dealt with eating disorders, this story will make you either say, "Wow, at least I was never that bad," or, " At least I am not the only one." As far as help, I don't see it giving much in the way of how to fix the problem. But it does give a human touch and reaches out to those who all-too-often feel completely alone.
