“I had no preconceptions about this book. I knew nothing about it, had no idea that the author was the great niece of Virginia Woolf and in fact, I cannot even remember where I purchased it. I simply remember picking it up somewhere earlier in the year and thinking that the blurb sounded interesting and it would be a good fit for my mental illness category of book bingo. Thank goodness I did, it took my breath away, left me crying several times and made me wish I lived in England so I could track Emma down, give her a big hug and tell her “you’ve got this” (in a non stalker kind of way).
This is a tell-all, warts and all exposure of Emma’s battle with anorexia. She wrote the book after writing about her battle in The Times newspaper and it’s raw. It opened my eyes to anorexia and why it is so misunderstood. Healing herself must have been hard enough, but to do it in such a public fashion must have taken courage beyond belief. I take my hat off to you Emma for sharing your journey in such a well written, humble, helpful and non judging manner.
You don’t need to be suffering from a food obsession, or have a loved one who is, to understand or enjoy this book. You just simply need to read it. In fact, I’m declaring it my memoir of the year for 2018 🍏🍫” (Katie)
