"Catherine Garrett has made a bold new departure in the approach to anorexia, strikingly original in its interweaving of psychological insight, narrative skill and theoretical depth. Beyond Anorexia is genuinely inspiring, because by displacing the center of the problem from the clinical to the spiritual, and from illness to recovery, it gives hope as well as instruction." Joel Kovel, Alger Hiss Professor of Social Science, Bard College, New York "In this unconventional look at eating disorders, Garrett addresses the existential and spiritual questions surrounding anorexia nervosa."
