Book Launch of Biting Anorexia by Lucy Howard-Taylor
‘My name is Lucy. I am in recovery from anorexia nervosa and major depression, each of which almost killed me.’
So begins this extraordinary depiction by a 19-year-old woman of her descent into the tortured existence of anorexia and her arduous and remarkable recovery from it.
As Lucy states in this powerful depiction of the reality of the condition, ‘Forget about misguided notions of vanity and thin models, this is what anorexia is really about.’
Beautifully and evocatively written, with devastating insights into the condition and recovery process, Biting Anorexia is ultimately inspiring.
Come along and meet the author, all welcome!
