This article explores how contemporary French texts (including Lou Delvig’s Jours sans faim (2001) and Geneviève Brisac’s Petite (1994)) shift emphasis from the anorexic body (typically represented as repulsive and fascinating) to articulate anorexia through abjection. These texts thereby set up abject relations with the reader that constitute alternative autopathographies.
