A traditional bone setter is a professional. These are professionals all over the world. You find them in any inaccessible village around the world.
Anorexia is a response to cultural images of the female body - waiflike, angular - that both capitulates to the ideal and also mocks it, strips away all the ancillary signs of sexuality, strips away breasts and hips and butt and leaves in their place a garish caricature, a cruel cartoon of flesh and bone.

Dave Van Ronk
