Demco Media, 2001 - Biography & Autobiography
1 Review
From the diaries she kept as an 11-year-old, the author's wry, perceptive account of her near-fatal struggle with anorexia nervosa is told with an unguarded openness not seen since Susanna Kaysen's Girl Interrupted. Martin Scorsese's company, Carpo Productions, has purchased movie rights to Gottlieb's journal.
