An event with

Emmeline Clein in conversation with Alice Slater

Dead Weight

Wednesday 1st May 2024 at 7:00pm

Daunt Books Summertown

Tickets £5.00


We’re very lucky to be hosting Emmeline Clein for an event whilst she is in the UK, in conversation about her book Dead Weight: On Hunger, Harm and Disordered Eating with Alice Slater. Dead Weight explores disordered eating from several different approaches – the author’s own experience, famous figures across time and popular culture, the economic conditions that underpin this epidemic, and the medical & social histories of anorexia, bulimia, orthorexia and binge eating. Tickets are £5 including a glass of wine or soft drink.

Dead Weight is a blistering debut— stylish, sharp, and smarter than anything else I’ve read about the fraught and gendered terrain of disordered eating – Jordan Kisner

Dead Weight seems destined to fundamentally reshape how we think and write about the subject of eating disorders. What separates Clein’s book from others on the topic is her commitment to treating the sufferers of eating disorders with the kind of dignity that clinicians tend to withhold…This is a moving, brilliant, and important book  – Vulture, Best Books of 2024 (So Far)
