// SYNOPSIS
Based on Fiona Wright's gracefully harrowing and beautifully earnest, award-winning novel of the same name.
Small Acts Of Disappearance charts the downward spiral of a woman with an eating disorder. An affliction that sees the protagonist caught between a world unable to understand her illness, and a self that is addicted to starvation and reducing everything to a size that she believes she will own.
// SYDNEY REVIEW OF BOOKS
"Wright’s essays move haltingly towards a public intimacy, an assertion that, unlike hunger, writing’s mediating role may be used to draw connections and thereby mime, not isolation, but love."
