Light as a Feather: an anthology of resilience
This collection differs from our first edition of Light as a Feather in that it focuses solely and specifically on eating disorders. We have carried over some of the previous works as well as incorporated many new stories and poems reflecting issues of body dysmorphia, food addiction, and other ailments which fall into the category of eating disorders.
If you have suffered from an eating disorder or know someone who has a disorder, there may be solace in this collection.
Edited by Courtney Butler, this collections contains work from writers around North America, including
“This collection is a wrenchingly painful, honest, and ultimately beautiful depiction of what people with eating disorders struggle through. Part of the insidiousness of disordered eating is that it operates so definitively in secrecy. It is characterized by locked bathroom doors, midnight binges, furtively skipped meals, and deeply held shame. Shame thrives in darkness, and this book brings in light. It shines on all the pain that is so often hidden away, and in doing so is a message of resilience, healing, and hope.”
