We’re proud to share the cover for Malnourished: A Memoir of Sisterhood and Hunger, which is set to release on
November 19 January 21, 2020.
In this stunning memoir, Cinthia Ritchie traces the tragedy of her sister’s eating disorder back to its beginning—their stepfather’s Pennsylvania farm, where both girls hungered for approval and affection during long, languid days and yearned for protection through endless, dark nights.
Malnourished dives deep into what we dare not speak—secrets, obsessions, deviations—demonstrating in gripping, lyrical prose how the damage done early in one’s life colors the taste of everything to come.
This is a book for anyone who has ever experienced lack, and for anyone who has nevertheless loved.
