Based on Fiona Wright's gracefully harrowing and beautifully earnest, award-winning novel of the same name,
Small Acts Of Disappearance centres around a woman struggling with anorexia, addicted to starvation and sabotaging all her meaningful relationships. A true-to-life story of a talented writer prevailing over a life-threatening eating disorder, in her delusional pursuit of perfection and control.
// 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."
