Ruth Simon is beautiful smart talented and always hungry As a teenager she starved herself almost to death and though outwardly healed inwardly she remains dangerousl Tough book tough tough book I had to read the entire book in 15 minute blocks Sometimes I felt physically ill after what I'd read It's a book dealing with eating disorders in history and has some pretty vile accounts of women eating cat vomit or licking floors and walls clean of everything including spiderwebs A male discourse on the problems of male discourse when dealing with women's eating disorders If there's anything of pure value in this book it's the statement made by Fleck that if so many women are trying so hard to die why do we men have any fear that we are inadeuate for them I've known suicidal girls I'm certain I've known many women with eating disorders though none have outwardly shown it in a way that I could see I don't agree with Rosen's idea that there's nothing that can be done to help these women and that trying to do so leads only to frustration and failure Perhaps I'm the typical male that Rosen describes I only want to get involved from some male ego But I cannot believe that we are all islands to ourselves that our problems exist only within ourselves and nobody can help because if we want to be sick than by god we'll be sick There are things we can do if nothing else support and show love but I don't agree at all with this notion that modern society is killing us all and there's nothing we can do but die
