More Description

An Alternate Selection of the Book of the Month Club and Quality Paperback Book Club

"Although it reads like a novel--a funny, touching, and absolutely gripping novel--Stick Figure is, astonishingly, the diary of Lori Gottlieb in 1978, when, at age 11 and all evidence to the contrary, she decided she was too fat and simply stopped eating..."
--Boston Globe

Growing up in Beverly Hills in the 1970s, Lori Gottlieb learned the lessons her culture had to teach her--for example, that "no one could ever like a girl with thunder thighs." Lori took those lessons seriously, and saw her world fall slowly apart as she developed a fierce reluctance to eat--winding up hospitalized when her "diet" took over her life. Fortunately, she recorded the journey in her diary, and her story is funny, slyly insightful, and surprisingly universal. A Los Angeles Times bestseller, Lori's story is being made into a motion picture film by Martin Scorsese's company, Carpo Productions.
