Piégée : mémoires d'une anorexique by Marya Hornbacher( Book )

At the age of four Marya Hornbacher looked in a mirror and decided she was fat. At nine, she was bulimic. At 12, she was anorexic. By the time she was 18, she'd been hospitalized five times, once in a mental asylum. Her doctors and her parents had given up on her; they were watching her die. But Marya decided to live. Four years on, now 22, here is her tale, powerfully told in a mix of memoir, cultural criticism and psychological examination. Here is the fury of a clever woman made stupid by her culture, who threw away her teenage years in a continuous cycle of bingeing and vomiting or just plain starvation

19 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spiseforstyrrelser rammer mange, både gutter og jenter, mest unge, men også voksne. I denne boken skriver Marya Hornbacher om sine egne erfaringer med og tanker om spiseforstyrrelser. Om boken sier hun: "Jeg skrev den fordi jeg er uenig i hva folk flest tror om spiseforstyrrelser. Jeg skrev den fordi folk ofte oppfatter et spiseproblem som et tegn på forfengelighet, umodenhetog galskap. Og det er alle disse tingene på en måte. Men det er også et vanedannende misbruk. Det er en reaksjon, kanskje litt overdreven, på en kultur, em familie, en identitet. Jeg ville gjøre alt for å hindre andre i å gå den veien jeg har gått. Denne boken var det eneste jeg klarte å finne på."

An astonishing dispatch from inside the belly of bipolar disorder, reflecting major new insights When Marya Hornbacher published her first book, Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia, she did not yet have the piece of shattering knowledge that would finally make sense of the chaos of her life. At age twenty-four, Hornbacher was diagnosed with Type I rapid-cycle bipolar, the most severe form of bipolar disorder. In Madness, in her trademark wry and utterly self-revealing voice, Hornbacher tells her new story. Through scenes of astonishing visceral and emotional power, she takes us inside her own desperate attempts to counteract violently careening mood swings by self-starvation, substance abuse, numbing sex, and self-mutilation. How Hornbacher fights her way up from a madness that all but destroys her, and what it is like to live in a difficult and sometimes beautiful life and marriage -- where bipolar always beckons -- is at the center of this brave and heart-stopping memoir. Madness delivers the revelation that Hornbacher is not alone: millions of people in America today are struggling with a variety of disorders that may disguise their bipolar disease. And Hornbacher's fiercely self-aware portrait of her own bipolar as early as age four will powerfully change, too, the current debate on whether bipolar in children actually exists. Ten years after Kay Redfield Jamison's An Unquiet Mind, this storm of a memoir will revolutionize our understanding of bipolar disorder

When Marya Hornbacher published her first book, Wasted, she did not yet know the reason for her all-but-shattered young life.

Here, in her trademark wry, self-revealing voice, Hornbacher tells her new story. She takes us inside her own desperate attempts to control violently careening mood swings by self-starvation, substance abuse, numbing sex, and self-mutilation. How Hornbacher fights her way up from a madness that all but destroys her, and what it is like to live in a difficult and sometimes beautiful life and marriage, is at the heart of this brave memoir. Millions of people in America struggle with a variety of disorders that may mask their true diagnosis of bipolar; also, Hornbacher's portrait of her own bipolar as early as age four will change the current debate on whether bipolar exists in children.--From publisher description
