Eating Disorders in Contemporary French Women's Writing examines the most common types of Eating Disorders (EDs) - anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa/bulimarexia, and binge eating disorder - as represented in contemporary French women's literature. The primary corpus comprises 40 autobiographical (and very occasionally autofictional) texts complemented by ample reference, and sometimes challenge, to clinical, medically-researched based, or theoretical publications on EDs.

Lucille Cairns was a Professor of French at the University of Durham, and author of numerous articles and chapters on French womens writing and filmmaking, male and female homosexuality in French literature and film, and Franco-Jewish writing, as well as of six sole-authored monographs.
