Coming in February, 2007 (National Eating Disorders Awareness Month)!



July 12, 2007

Ring the bells that can still ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light comes in.
-- Leonard Cohen

Dear Friends,

I want you to be the first to know that I’ve launched a new website devoted exclusively to the issues raised in my nonfiction work. At www.gainingthetruth.com you’ll find a variety of information about eating disorders treatment and prevention, as well as related psychological and health topics.

To begin with, I’ve posted listings of the books I found most helpful in my research for GAINING, plus links to treatment programs and information about my own books on eating disorders and my other books on psychological topics. There is also a page for your letters and comments.

Over time, most of the health-related information from my home site, www.aimeeliu.net, including my newsletter, will migrate to www.gainingthetruth.com. In future, my home site will focus on fiction, the writing craft, and other literary endeavors.

The two sites will take time to separate and mature (much like people!). If you have suggestions or requests for material you’d like to see on either site, please drop me a note at gainingthetruth@gmail.com

May you always be joyful, peaceful, and well!

With love,

Aimee Liu

Work on Eating Disorders
While there are numerous memoirs available chronicling individual women’s struggles with anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders, this is the first book to bring together many people’s stories to create a complete and candid picture of the recovery process. Aimee Liu has skillfully brought together firsthand accounts of recovery to create a realistic roadmap for the journey. This book also includes informational sidebars, written by professionals in the field, on topics including treatment options, choosing the right therapist, the pros and cons of medication, how parents and spouses can help, and much more.
How do anorexia and bulimia impact life AFTER recovery? GAINING is one of the first books about eating disorders to connect the latest scientific insights to the personal truth of life before, during, and especially after anorexia and bulimia.
America's first memoir of anorexia, and one of the earliest books about eating disorders, originally published in 1979
