CONTROLLED, the debut memoir by 23-year-old Indian-American writer Neesha Arter, details a poignant story of redemption and self-preservation. The memoir is officially out by Heliotrope Books. Arter illustrates the jarring reality of recovery from an eating disorder, which was precipitated by being raped at 14, an event initially denied by her conservative family. Neesha’s story it identifies the cause of anorexia, and presents it as the central focus. CONTROLLED shows us the disheartening attempts made to persuade an otherwise normal teenage girl that she was not raped, and the subsequent demand by her parents to involve her in a legal case against her will.
