Book Review: Out of the Pantry by Ronni Robinson

I’m always impressed by anyone’s ability to write a frank memoir about their own struggles in which they objectively present their neuroses and challenges, particularly in mental health, and lay themselves bare for others to read. I think it’s tremendously valuable and marvelous that people do so, because without a shared identity and story it is very difficult for people struggling with their own demons to realize that there is another side from which one can emerge during the course of such a battle.

I am always moved by the bravery inherent in any such undertaking. Robinson’s story provides a fine example of this in an area that I think often gets pushed under the rug, particularly in the annals of eating disorders: compulsive overeating.

Robinson’s tale is a moving one, and she tells it with aplomb. In an unabashed and unapologetic style, she relates her experiences, feelings, and struggles in a way that is resonant and from the heart. It was an engaging read – her voice is very relatable, as are many of her situations and experiences. I applaud her for her courage in sharing her story and am delighted for her in her recovery!

Thanks to the author for my obligation – free review copy.
