"Avoiding the cliches and conventions of the usual eating disorders memoir, Julia De Pree's "Body Story" captures the complexity and fragility of one woman's struggle to attain peace with her body. In language that is both spare and lyrical, De Pree creates a compelling narrative that is hard to put down."Susan Bordo, author of "Unbearable Weight: Feminism, Western Culture, and the Body""Julia K. De Pree's memoir "Body Story" is as sparse and clear as the American plains. Her journey from anorexia to a state of well-being serves as both comfort and warning to other contemporary women - women who believe in having it all that even though old demons may continue to haunt them, in moments of fleeting bliss these demons can be conquered. -- Alice Carey, author of "I'll Know It When I See It: A Daughter's Search for Home in Ireland"""Body Story" conveys a vivid, direct experience. I especially love the contrast between her girlhood and the time of her adolescence, when her virginity was at stake and when she began wanting a body that was almost too thin to see. It is a beautifully written story. -- Linda Leonard, author of "The Wounded Woman" and "Witness to Fire: Creativity and the Veil of Addiction""
