Spotlight on Eating Disorders

Are you one of the many people who enjoyed reading Portia de Rossi's bestselling 2010 memoir Unbearable Lightness, which shared this actress's experiences with bulimia? If so, you might also like newly-published book Riptide: Struggling with and Resurfacing from a Daughter's Eating Disorder (warning: this nonfictional account does not have a happy ending). For fictional takes on eating disorders, you can also try the Christian-themed Feeling for Bones by Bethany Pierce, the critically-acclaimed teen novel Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson, or the novel-in-verse Nothing by Robin Friedman, which deals with bulimia from a teenage boy's point of view.

  1. It's rare to see books on eating disorders from a male perspective, so I'm glad to find one on this list.
