New book: Feeding the Fame

Just a head's up on a new book that has come out on EDs (published September 2006). It is called Feeding the Fame: Celebrities Tell Their Real-Life Stories of Eating Disorders and Recovery by Gary Stromberg, Jane Merrill.

About the Book (taken from the website)
A collection of inspiring interviews with renowned writers, models, actors, athletes, and other celebrities who have overcome eating disorders and who courageously share their personal struggles and triumphs.
The headlines are filled with the names of people in the limelight who are beginning to speak openly about their tragic relationship with food and dieting in hopes of helping others afflicted with eating disorders. Actors, models, and athletes are particularly hard hit with this dis-ease, primarily because a stunning appearance or performance is part of the job description. Feeding the Fame captures the stories of approximately 20 celebrities who have suffered eating disorders. These original personal accounts reveal the most intimate fears and disappointments, as well as the unconventional, fascinating, and effective paths back to a normal healthy body image and eating patterns.

Seems interesting! Finally, celebrities and EDs in a non-tabloidized manner. I hope.
