Summary

In this searingly honest memoir, Biting Anorexia, law student and recovered anorexic Lucy Howard-Taylor tells the story of her descent into anorexia and major depression and her remarkable recovery. Anorexia is the most fatal of all psychiatric illnesses, and, as Lucy says, "To challenge an eating disorder, or any mental illness, is to wage a prolonged, painful, and devastating war -- it is the most confusing and draining part of the illness." Lucy's penetrating insights, beautifully written and tinged with a wicked sense of humor, capture and reveal the mind of a person with anorexia. This story will inspire and support those troubled with anorexia and depression, and also help their family and friends better understand the power behind these mental conditions.
