Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia (Non-fiction) by Marya Hornbacher

A New York Times Bestseller, this memoir is a terrifyingly honest account of Marya Hornbacher’s battle with both anorexia and bulimia. It truthfully and brutally accounts for her experiences as a sufferer. Beautifully written and emotionally wrenching the memoir provides for a unique insight into the two disorders from the perspective of a sufferer.

A big hello and thank you for reading! Passionate about literature, psychology, and life I launched Book Therapy as an alternative form of therapy using the power of literature. I create reading lists/personalised book prescriptions based on your individual needs, this is my signature personalised reading service. You can also check out Book Therapy’s other free reading lists and A- Z of book prescriptions (covering both fiction and non-fiction). These suggest books based on your existing life situation (e.g. anxiety, job change, relationship heartache) as well as interests (e.g memoir, historical fiction, non-fiction, crime etc). There’s also a Children’s A — Z of Book Prescriptions. Feel free to check out the blog for more literary gems.
