This is the story of the Robinson family —and the aftermath suffered in losing their 26-year-old daughter to bulimia. Working closely with the family, Laia Abril reconstructs Cammy’s life telling her story through memories and flashbacks shared during the family’s grieving process.

The Epilogue is about absence, but also about Cammy’s omnipresence: her energy, her willfulness, her often clandestine struggle with a disorder that truncated her life and capsized the lives of those around her. The book shares the dilemmas and the frustration, the guilt and the sorrow, all blended together in the bittersweet act of remembering their most troubled loved one.

On Eating Disorders, documents and visualises uncomfortable aspects of the most fatal of mental health disorders, and its triggers and taboos. In this third chapter, Abril opens the boundaries of the two of the most avoided topics: death and the subsequent suffering of the collateral victims.

The volume includes many folding pages, so that additional images and texts are added while maintaining the continuity of the narrative.
