Searching for God in the Garbage
Published by Argus Publishing
Bracha Goetz’s memoir, Searching for God in the Garbage, is an extremely candid chronicle of how the author became an observant Jew and overcame anorexia, told through actual diary entries and letters, spanning through the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
Searching for God in the Garbage reflects changes in both the inner and outer world of the Goetz during these exciting and turbulent times. The reader experiences the loss of her innocence through adolescence, struggles with increasingly riskier behaviors, and the emergence of a gradually developing anorexia.
Groundbreaking insights are realized, impacting her recovery from a wide range of addictions. The thesis of this psychological and spiritual detective book is that eating disorders stem from hungry souls. As demonstrated through the author’s recovery and eventual epiphany, these destructive traits are simply desperate cravings for spiritual nourishment.
