Eating the shadow: a memoir of loss and recovery
Fenn books and Media, ,
When CL Watson discovers that her brother, Carter, has topped 400 pounds and can no longer bathe himself, she decides to do something to save him. By turns hilarious, insightful, and moving, CL's true story about trying to save her brother from obesity is a journey into the very meaning of self-esteem. As children of alcoholics, CL and her brother are both at risk for addiction and depression. Even more frightening, CL's two boys are at risk, as well. "Addiction in the family is a cold shiver in the genes," says CL Watson, "and the question sits in my consciousness like a cocked gun: Will I find a way to break the cycle?" EATING THE SHADOW tells the story of how we consume illusion in search of nourishment, and how we discover healing in truth.
