An Eating Disorder
When Lisa Knopp was 54, she realized that the severe food restricting that had left her sick and small when she was 15 and 25 had returned. Now deep into middle age, she was full of urgent questions and determined to understand her malady. How could she ever heal from a condition that is caused by a tangle of genetic, biological, familial, psychological, economic, spiritual and cultural forces? Bread will help those who suffer from a conflicted relationship with food, weight, and self-image and those who do not, to discover that eating disorders and disordered eating are about more than just food and weight. Knopp’s essays have appeared in numerous literary publications including the Missouri Review, Michigan Review, Iowa Review, Gettysburg Review, Brevity: A Journal of Concise Literary Nonfiction and Creative Nonfiction.
