Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain

by Portia de Rossi - £7.99  Simon & Schuster Ltd (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780857204110 | ISBN 10: 0857204114

"I didn't decide to become anorexic. It snuck up on me disguised as a healthy diet, a professional attitude. Although there was a certain glamour to anorexics, I didn't want to be one. I just wanted to excel in dieting. And weighing in at 80 pounds on 300 calories a day, I was the best little dieter there ever was."
 
In scalding prose, Portia de Rossi reveals the pain and illness that haunted her for decades. She alternately starved herself and binged, putting her life in danger and lying to herself and everyone around her about the depth of her illness. From her lowest point, Portia began the painful climb back to health and happiness, ultimately falling head over heels in love with Ellen DeGeneres.
 
In this remarkable and landmark book, she tells a story that inspires hope and nourishes the spirit.
