Publisher Comments:

Why would a talented young woman enter into a torrid affair with hunger, drugs, sex, and death? Through five lengthy hospital stays, endless therapy, and the loss of family, friends, jobs, and all sense of what it means to be "normal," Marya Hornbacher lovingly embraced her anorexia and bulimia — until a particularly horrifying bout with the disease in college put the romance of wasting away to rest forever. A vivid, honest, and emotionally wrenching memoir, Wasted is the story of one woman's travels to reality's darker side — and her decision to find her way back on her own terms.

About the Author

Marya Hornbacher is a journalist as well as a writer of fiction and memoir. Her first book, Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia, has become a classic. The Center of Winter is her first novel. She lives in Minneapolis.

This book single handedly changed my view of bulimia. I had had the disorder for about a year, and was struggling with a seven plus year battle with anorexia when I read it. The authors direct, unapologetic memoir made me aware of how my eating disorder could hurt others, and myself. I highly recommend it!!
