Synopsis

In this stark portrayal of a young woman's struggle with anorexia, Lesley Fairfield draws on her own experiences of an eating disorder to give a powerful and candid story of hope and survival.



"Do I know you?" "You've always known me, silly... I'm Tyranny, your other self. I keep you thin." One day, horrified by her reflection in the mirror, Anna makes a life-changing decision - that food is the enemy. Her obsession with being thin and beautiful will now dominate her every waking and sleeping hour. Should she falter or show any signs of weakness, Tyranny, her inner voice of "reason" will be only too willing to push her back into line. Years later, when Anna finally finds the strength to defeat her personal demon, it will be a matter of life and death.

Staff Choice

Tyranny is a great way to get your first glimpse of what living with anorexia is like, as it covers years of Anna’s life and how it affected her. It’s a great way to get the discussion going or at least think about it as an individual. It covers the self-loathing and how those with anorexia see themselves completely differently to what’s real. It doesn’t shy away from the seriousness of the illness, or how badly things can go. We see Anna’s whole journey right from the very first diet to recovery and becoming well again, and everything in between. A really great graphic novel on a really important topic.
