Om The Reading Cure

At the age of fourteen, Laura Freeman was diagnosed with anorexia. She had seized the one aspect of her life that she seemed able to control, and struck different foods from her diet one by one until she was starving. But even at her lowest point, the one appetite she never lost was her love of reading. As Laura battled her anorexia, she gradually re-discovered how to enjoy food - and life more broadly - through literature. Plum puddings and pottles of fruit in Dickens gave her courage to try new dishes; the wounded Robert Graves' appreciation of a pair of greengages changed the way she thought about plenty and choice; Virginia Woolf's painterly descriptions of bread, blackberries and biscuits were infinitely tempting. Book by book, meal by meal, Laura developed an appetite and discovered an entire library of reasons to live. The Reading Cure is a beautiful, inspiring account of hunger and happiness, about addiction, obsession and recovery, and about the way literature and food can restore appetite and renew hope. Read by Laura Freeman (p) Orion Publishing Group 2018

This book seems to have had the most unanimously glowing reviews of 2018 so far. Quite rightly: Freeman's wonderfully uplifting book is all about how she rediscovered the joy of food, and overcame her anorexia, by escaping into the fictional worlds of Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf. A miraculous memoir ... Anyone who has encountered anorexia, either first hand or in someone they love, will recognise this harrowing yet heartening portrait. The Reading Cure is a book for the bookish, for those hungry for self- knowledge, or for those who are just hungry. [A] beautifully written hybrid of memoir and literary criticism... This book is about the anguish of anorexia, written by a bookworm unfurling her wings as a writer of considerable power. Shines like a beacon Lyrically written, raw and honest, this inspiring book truthfully describes an ongoing struggle with inner demons but celebrates those hard-won achievements with grace and gladness as books and their invaluable lessons restored Laura's appetite for life. [An] honest, beautifully written account. Hers is a story of salvation and picnics, ravioli and freedom, Dickens and survival. Laura's recovery is testament to the power of literature, the love of a concerned family and the tenacity of a woman on a mission. This stirring autobiography by Laura Freeman looks set to be a key release. The most delightful hymn to the joys of reading that you could imagine. Inspiring and illuminating.
