The face of anorexia is not a glossy model in a perfume ad. It's a starving animal, circling the empty cupboards, blank-eyed and vacant. It's a face frozen in a rictus grin, mouthing lies. "I'm fine," it says. "Everything is under control."

"I have always felt hungry," says Emma Scrivener. "Not just for food, but for everything: from money to recognition. I'm a human chasm, a vortex of insatiable longing."

Rescued from a disorder that nearly killed her, Emma is now passionate about warning others about the dark and hidden world she inhabited for too long.

Harrowing, heart-breaking, human, and humourous, this book will grip you from start to finish.

Emma Scrivener was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, studied at Oxford and worked in London. She is married to Glen and they live in Eastbourn, UK. She speaks about the gospel and identity and blogs at A New Name.
