In the scary graphic novel Tyranny Lesley Fairfield gives the skinny on eating disorders, based on her 30-year struggle with anorexia and bulimia. Her sane, quiet bottom-line message to students and other book-lovers at Red River College: "I got well."
On the other hand, the raunchy (if not raucous) George Elliott Clarke covers corporeal excesses. Check out any of his books, particularly his latest, I & I.
Long poem? Verse novel? Whatever. Here's a taste from page 72:
The lovers laugh, get loose, snuggle.
Each sugars each sweetmeat sex.
(Betty's "hot," caramel-licorice wiggling
Summons Malcolm's molten satisfaction.)
All this, and funky footnotes, too.
