About this Item

"This is the first novel I've read that accurately renders the slice of half-life that is the anorexic experience. Jennifer Shute's elegant prose style is further distinguished by her feminist insight into the cultural genesis of the disease. Life Size is highly recommended for anyone who is baffled by anorexia and needs both an emotional and political understanding."--Naomi Wolf. An excellent book. The top corner of DJ is missing and some fraying to the heel of DJ spine. Bookseller Inventory # 001638
