About A Hunger Artist

A Hunger Artist explores what it's like to have anorexia nervosa and to recover from it, emphasising in particular the powerful interconnections between the sufferer's physical and psychological states. The blog discusses recent directions in clinical research on eating disorders, analyses some of the paradoxes and vicious circles that characterise this dangerous mental and physical illness, and connects eating disorders with current sociocultural trends and with personal factors like relationships, work/study, and sport.
