Unbearable Lightness

Who has read Portia de Rossi’s autobiography, Unbearable Lightness? In it she chronicles her journey through anorexia from its childhood origins in a modeling career to the healing process and the rejuvenation of soul and body. While reading I was riveted, engrossed, aghast, weeping, moved and heartened by her life story. What a light she brings to the world. Her spirit is a beacon of kindness, joy, beauty, gentleness and strength. For anyone struggling to love their body or wanting to understand body disorders more fully, I recommend this book.

Portia de Rossi is an Australian actress and author best known for her roles in the television shows Ally McBeal, Arrested Development and Scandal. She is married to television host Ellen DeGeneres. Her book, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain, can be found on amazon and at many book retailers.
