Lawrence has put together a troubling yet fascinating memoir of her marriage to an alcoholic with anorexia and .
She details many of the manifestations of his disease, such as ritualized and prolonged exercise, food binges involving "forbidden" foods, and an intense fear of bloating that prevented him from drinking water. The "bitter ice" in the title refers to the husband's habit of constantly crunching ice chips to suppress hunger pangs as well as to get some fluid into his body.

Barbara Lawrence's "Bitter Ice" was a stunning read for me on several levels. First there is the story. Barbara begins describing herself as a very bright (but perhaps a bit neglected) socially well counneced young woman and tells of her journey though college and into what appeared to be a satisfying and appropriate marriage. She continues her tale describing life as partner to an increasingly ill man and her private process of recognizing and finding a response to her horrible circumstances.
