A classic of psychology and eating disorders, now reissued with an important, and perhaps controversial, new afterword by the author, Wasted is New York Times bestselling author Marya Hornbacher s highly acclaimed memoir that chronicles her battle with anorexia and bulimia. Vivid, honest, and emotionally wrenching, Wasted is the memoir of how Marya Hornbacher willingly embraced hunger, drugs, sex, and death until a particularly horrifying bout with anorexia and bulimia in college forever ended the romance of wasting away. In this updated edition, Hornbacher, an authority in the field of eating disorders, argues that recovery is not only possible, it is necessary. But the journey is not easy or guaranteed. With a different ending to her story that adds a contemporary edge, Wasted continues to be timely and relevant. "

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.

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.
