Hornbacher's poignant memoir of succumbing to the eating disorders anorexia and bulimia for a near-lifetime moves beyond the traditional angry-at-the-world manifesto listeners might expect. True, there is anger in her voice. Her tone throughout the audiobook is one of jaw-clenched distaste--at her fighting parents, her feeling of general displacement in the world, but ultimately of her own life choices. Hornbacher's background in theater comes through in the earnest and graphic articulation of her experiences. Wasted is an honest and heartfelt account that asks us, by example, to reflect on our own life battles. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 98]
