Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

"I fell for the great American dream, female version, hook, line, and sinker," Marya Hornbacher writes. "I, as many young women do, honest-to-God believed that once I Just Lost a Few Pounds, suddenly I would be a New You, I would have Ken-doll men chasing my thin legs down with bouquets of flowers on the street, I would become rich and famous and glamorous and lose my freckles and become blond and five foot ten." Hornbacher describes in shocking detail her lifelong quest to starve herself to death, to force her short, athletic body to fade away. She remembers telling a friend, at age 4, that she was on a diet. Her bizarre tale includes not only the usual puking and starving, but also being confined to mental hospitals and growing fur (a phenomenon called lanugo, which nature imposes to keep a body from freezing to death during periods of famine).

Pressestimmen

“A memoir that resonates with unflinching candor and ironic wit, Wasted is a book that can save lives. The courage that prompted it awes me. Yes, this one is not to be missed.” (Dorothy Allison)

“A scary but tentatively triumphant memoir....[Told] with grace, sharp humor and candor.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“Her book will be value not only to fellow sufferers: Any woman who has ever been made gleeful by the diminishing of her physical self will gain from reading this painful and sharp-boned account. ” (Newsday)

“Hornbacher writes like an artist, shaping her themes without self-pity or self-importance, wondering with intelligence why the dissatisfaction everyone feels with life is so often blamed on the female body.” (Village Voice)

“Powerful, compelling, intelligent....A memoir that has the tension and movement of a well-paced novel. You simply cannot put Wasted down.” (San Diego Union Tribune)

“Startlingly frank, breathtakingly emotive.” (Elle)

“Stunning...A tortured-yet-compelling account of a life spent bingeing, purging, and starving...A primal scream of a story sure to resonate even with those who possess a healthy attitude toward food and weight.” (Glamour)

“Stunning..a tortured-yet-compelling account of a life spent bingeing, purging, and starving..A primal scream of a story sure to resonate even with those who possess a healthy attitude toward food and weight.” (Glamour)

“This is a terrifically well-written book, completely devoid of self-pity.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“An unsparing, terrifying, razor-edged self-portrait that cuts right into the heart of this most paradoxical of psychological disorders.” (Patricia Chao)

,,Wasted" ist ein Buch, dass man liest und auch Jahre später immer wieder hervorholt, um Passagen daraus zu lesen.
Dieses Buch ist so eindrucksvoll, schonungslos ehrlich und faszinierend. Marya Hornbacher hat eine Schreibe, wie sie nur ein paar Mal pro Generation vorkommt. So raffiniert und gut recherchiert beleuchtet sie ihre Essstörung aus jedem Blickwinkel und erzählt dabei ihre Lebensgeschichte mit allen Höhen und Tiefen. Ihre von Magersucht und Bulimie dominierte Kindheit und Jugend erweckt unglaublich viele Emotionen beim Leser und unterscheidet sich einfach grundlegend von den nicht-biographischen Werken zu diesem Thema, die so oft nur ein schwaches Jugendbuch-Niveau erreichen. Aber auch andere vergleichbare biographische Werke werden von ,,Wasted" mühelos ausgestochen.
Marya Hornbacher zieht Fachliteratur hinzu, wenn sie ihre Essstörung und ihre diversen Klinikaufenthalte analysiert und beleuchtet auch die Eindrücke und Erfahrungen ihrer Mitmenschen. Für Angehörige von Betroffenen kann dieses Buch unglaublich hilfreich dabei sein, Betroffene ein klein wenig zu verstehen.

Für Betroffene selbst sei vor dem Lesen Vorsicht geboten - ,,Wasted" ist extrem triggernd und kann Betroffene schnell zu Rückfällen verleiten. Hornbacher beschreibt klar essgestörtes Verhalten und auch die positiven Emotionen, die die Krankheit oft in ihr ausgelöst hat. Ein ,,Abchreckungs-Buch" ist ,,Wasted" für die meisten betroffenen Leser nicht.

Wenn man das beste Memoir zu Anorexie oder Bulimie sucht, ist ,,Wasted" die erste Wahl.

I have read this book a few times and had mixed reactions. I have been hospitalized twice for anorexia at the same hospital as Marya went to, and her experiences are brutally honest and true-to-life. Anyone wanting to understand anorexia or bulimia ought to read this book. Her quotes about how much she hated the bulimia episodes and how anorectics view bulimics are usually right on (although as both an anorectic and a bulimic, I have found quite a few exceptions to her "rule." I still suffer greatly from the two disorders, and it is refreshing to get someone's voice out there.
One CAUTION, however: If you suffer from an eating disorder, be very careful in reading this book. I have needed to put it down quite a few times because it was too intense for me, and I have been triggered by it quite a few times. But if you want to know what is going on inside your loved one's head, remember that everyone is different so do not assume he/she feels like Marya does, but also bear in mind that Marya has been through a lot of the same stuff that many people with ED's go through.

As the mother of an anorexic\bulimic, I found this to be a brutally honest account of the life of an eating disordered young woman. While I watch my own daughter struggle on a daily basis with her own eating disorder, I now realize, that try as I may, I cannot stop her. I can love her, accept her and support her, but I cannot stop her. This book supplied me with some much needed insight into the problems entailed with anorexia\bulimia. I can only empathize with the women experiencing this disease, and can understand as a parent, the pain and heartache this monster can cause. I have read many books about anorexia and bulimia, sat in the eating disorder therapists office, the nutritionists office, and been with my daughter as we saw doctor after doctor, from pediatrician, to gyn, to a doctor who specializes in eating disorders. I know my daughter fights daily. She is now married and lives far away, but she still speaks of her anorexia\bulimia every time we are on the phone. I would have fixed it if I could, but only she has the power to do that. My prayers are with her and Marya and all the women suffering at the hands of this monster. This was definetly, the most realistic, honest and hardest (yet best) book I have ever read on this subject.

I was really interested in reading this book. I liked it for its realistic story. The woman describes things so clear and honest. She writes her feelings and her thoughts. It's not an exciting book, more like a biography. That's the only point, I missed the "over the top" story. I think there is nothing in the book unrealistic and changed from her reality. She describes excactly what happened in her life.

Absolutely, this book is riveting-- hideously breathtaking. It is also a book that all of us with eating disorders will empathize with to an almost dangerous extent. I do agree that this book is necessary reading for anyone who is close to a person with an eating disorder, and like the many people who reviewed this book, would recommend that people afflicted approach this book with trepidation. Sylvia Plath's ARIEL is probably not the book of poetry you would counsel someone to read if they were suicidal, and, in the same manner, Hornbacher's WASTED has a similarly upsetting, intoxicating, engaging effect, and it is equally possible that those who fight bulemia and aneorexia will find such pain & joy in finally stumbling upon someone whom speaks the reality of these diseases with such little mincing, that they will feel as if they've found a hero, and, as we do with heroes, forget to question her in relation to us as individuals. I know that my experiance with this book was that I found it necessary to stop, take a deep breath & search for my own voice of sanity, because the insanity of my disease was so similar to hers (as I've seen mentioned quite frequently in these reviews). Even after 5 years in recovery, I had to forcibly distance myself, not to stop myself from falling back in, but to remind myself that recovery is as much a part of these diseases as the years of abuse.
Most importantly, I believe, is that it is impossible to dissuade those who suffer from reading this book-- we need someone who gets this disease out there, who acknowledges the seriousness of these cycles-- that it is no small crisis and that it can consume your life and fell your emotional, material, romantic, & physical goals on every level.
