Wishful Shrinking

A Young Man’s Story of Surviving Anorexia

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Part memoir, part self-help guide, this witty book will take you through the day-to-day struggles of living with an eating disorder. Stand-up comedian Dave Chawner tells the story of how he became anorexic, what his life with mental illness was like, and how he started his journey to recovery. Combining the adversity of mental illness with a comedian’s perceptive humour, this book gives hope to anyone in a similar situation and provides insight into what life with mental illness is like.
Dave Chawner is an award winning stand-up comedian, mental health campaigner, and anorexia survivor.
