COMMENDATIONS

'I could not put this book down. It had me gripped from the first page.
 It is an autobiographical account of the author’s struggle with life-threateningly severe anorexia.
Not the cheeriest of topics but this is compelling and readable without feeling voyeuristic. It is beautifully written.
Being an Oxford English graduate and a self confessed perfectionist probably helps. Her passionate personality is able to walk off the page and she seems effortlessly to say what she means.
She is able to explain what anorexia feels like, what drives it, what in her head she was hoping to achieve, and the factors which meant she chose this way to cope with life. I have never read anything about eating disorders which approaches this in clarity and insight.
 Emma is intelligent, articulate, analytical, theological, was severely affected and is now recovered.'
 Annie Gemmill, GP and minister's wife

CUSTOMER REVIEWS FROM EMMAS WEB SITE

A New Name is not just educating, I found it relevent to anyone's life, with or without an eating disorder. It's beautifully written, I love Emma's expressions, the way she describes feelings and situations, she has an amazing talent, the details here and there that complete the picture in reader's head, just wonderful! I met Emma once, and I look forward to meet her again having learnt so much about her! she is an incredible woman, and a very talented writer!
