Changing Ways by Julia Tannenbaum is a really good book about anorexia. It's actually a series. The third one just came out.

They don't sell it here in my country.

Im looking for a book I read, I don’t remember the title. It’s about a biracial (Indian and white) woman who's addicted to heroin and bulimic and hiding it from her husband as her marriage breaks down. It was pretty good, but I cant for the life of me remember the name.

 

Perhaps The Addict, by Diya Sethi?

I just read Susan Burton's memoir called Empty that came out this year. Haven't seen it on your master list, so I thought I'd let you know :)

Thank you for recommending this. I am just starting to read it.

  • Goodbye Ed, Hello Me - Jenni Schaefer | non-fiction | recovery
  • I Can Beat Anorexia!: Finding the Motivation, Confidence and Skills to Recover and Avoid Relapse - Nicola Davies | non-fiction | recovery | workbook | personally didn't get much out of this but might be good for those recently diagnosed &/or really motivated to recover
  • Nothing Tastes As Good - Claire Hennessy | fiction

The Wonderful Sea by Kira Poutanen and Stalin's Cows by Sofi Oksanen

I know this is an old post, but I loved Sofi Oksanen. Purge is one of my all time favorites, I will have to give this a read as well!

Couple fiction additions:

"Lady Oracle" Margaret Atwood

"She's Come Undone" Wally Lamb

 

Non-fiction/academia-ish:

"Unbearable weight" Susan Bordo (I read this for a grad school class on gender and health. It lead to a class discussion where 3 or 4 of about 15 people in the room disclosed eating disorder histories; one of the most intense classroom experiences I've ever had. It's somewhat dense but really fucking good.)

I've just read Overshadowed (the play) by Eve O'Connor.  It's actually pretty different to the Youtube series.  Worth a read.  Very short though!

 

Then I read Safety In Numbers by Brittany Burgunder.  Very long and detailed, and good if you're in the mood for something triggering (which I was.)  But my god, this girl is the ultimate narcissist.  A really unpleasant selfish individual, whether in the height of ED or during the phases in which she was "recovered".  Don't read it if you're looking for an inspirational recovery story, because this is not it.

 

Portia de Rossi's Unbearable Lightness is one of the better ED memoirs I've read, definitely worth checking out.
