Interlude Summary and Analysis

This interlude is written in September of 1996 when Marya is doing research for her book. She writes of speaking with the doctor who oversees her case while she is in Methodist Hospital. It is strange to look back through the files pertaining to her illness. She sees them as being about someone else, someone for whom she feels sorry. The girl shows no sorrow for the way she is treating her body. Marya writes that she knows now the end results of her eating disorder. She lives with the damage she did to her body every day. As she reads her files, Marya sees how obvious her lies to her doctors and parents were. She also remembers how many times she would fall as a result of her eating disorder.
