Eisha Marjara on writing Faerie, for CBC Books (January 2016)


Filmmaker Eisha Marjara writes about how she wrote Faerie, her acclaimed debut YA novel, for CBC Books.

Faerie is about a South Asian teenager afflicted with anorexia. In its review, Quill and Quire wrote: "Faerie is intensely intimate, containing details that will ring resoundingly true for anyone who has ever suffered with an eating disorder. The strange combination of self-hatred that fuels extreme weight loss and pride that comes from the sensation of feeling nothing but hard bone under the skin is achingly true-to-life, but not glorified."
