Read full description of the books Piégée : Mémoires d'une anorexique:Marya Hornbacher a frôlé la mort. En treize ans, son poids a oscillé entre 61 et 23,5 kg. Elle a guéri, rechuté, guéri, rechuté. Elle a été hospitalisée six fois et même internée. Aujourd'hui, contrairement aux prédictions des médecins, elle est toujours en vie et elle a décidé d'écrire ce livre. L'histoire d'une petite fille qui se trouvait trop grosse, qui mangeait pour combler un vide affectif. Une petite fille qui a beaucoup souffert. Une adolescente qui a voulu se détruire et qui a failli mener à bien son entreprise de destruction en construisant méthodiquement son enfer.
Read information about the authorMarya Hornbacher published her first book, Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia (HarperCollins Publishers, Inc.), in 1998, when she was twenty-three. What started as a crazy idea suggested by a writer friend became the classic book that has been published in fourteen languages, is taught in universities and writing programs all over the world, and has, according to the thousands of letters Marya has received over the years, changed lives.
Her second book, the acclaimed novel The Center of Winter (HarperCollins, 2005) has been called "masterful," "gorgeous writing," "a stunning acheivement of storytelling," "delicious," and "compulsive reading." Told in three voices, by six-year-old Kate, her mentally ill brother Esau, and their mother Claire, The Center of Winter is the story of a family recovering from a father's suicide in the spare, wintry Minnesota north, a story of struggle, transformation, and hope.
Marya's new memoir Madness: A Life (Houghton Mifflin) is an intense, beautifully written book about the difficulties, and promise, of living with mental illness. It is already being called "the most visceral, important book on mental illness to be published in years." It will be published in April of 2008.
The recipient of a host of awards for journalism and a Pulitzer Prize nominee, Marya has lectured at universities around the country, taught writing and literature, and published in academic and literary journals since 1992. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband Jeff, their cats Shakespeare and T.S. Eliot, and their miniature dachsunds Milton and Dante.
