About the Author

Nancy Tucker is a 20-year-old author and nanny. She suffered from both anorexia and bulimia nervosa throughout her teens, but is now on the road to recovery and has gained a place at Oxford to study Experimental Psychology in 2015. She lives in London.


'Nancy is fiercely intelligent ... [her book] is astonishingly good ... and a devastating insight into a horrifying illness and its terrible toll.' * The Sunday Times *
'The book is stylish and incisive, and [Nancy] weaves her tale of fear and food, confusion and calories grippingly and with skill.' * Guardian *
'Nancy Tucker wrote to me when she was a little girl. Her letter must have really impressed me, because I replied that she was such a good writer that I was sure she'd have a book of her own published one day. And so she has, aged 21 - a startlingly affecting, starkly written account of her anorexia. This isn't just another anorexia misery memoir - it's a work of literature' * Jacqueline Wilson *
'I've never felt so immersed in someone else's world... they were being so utterly truthful even when describing incredibly difficult times in their lives... hopefully it'll lead to a better understanding of eating disorders in the general public.' * Mind *
'More than simply a tale of suffering, this book is an illustration of the complexity of eating disorder and a reminder that the `cure' for each sufferer may need to be as multifaceted and as personal as the disorder itself.' * The Psychologist *
'I'm hardly the target market, but I found Tucker's account of her illness clear-sighted, eye-opening, moving and wise.' * The Bookseller *
