effect

the new yorker

I was reading an issue of The New Yorker from 2 or 3 weeks ago and there was an article in the Shouts & Murmurs section about a man who thought he was anorexic. The character is made up; it isn't the writer of the article. It's an odd bit of writing, and I don't think anything like this has been posted here before, so I figured I would see what you all think. If you get to the end and are appalled and/or confused, you didn't get "the catch". I don't want to spoil it, so if someone doesn't get it and comments, I'll explain it in a comment (but you should read the article first).
