Summary
Since childhood, Emily Clements' sense of self had always been shaped by the opinions of others and the need to be liked. When a stand-off with her best friend sees nineteen-year-old Emily stranded in Vietnam, she is alone for the first time and a drift in a new environment. With seemingly nothing to lose, she makes the biggest decision of her life - to stay. But Emily's attempts to bridge a yawning loneliness spur a downward spiral of recklessness, as she hurtles from one sexual encounter to the next. It will take a truly terrifying experience for her to understand that sex is both a weapon and a wound in her battle for self-worth and empowerment. Delicately interweaving past and present,The Lotus Eaters is a sharply written story of self-redemption from an exciting young voice in Australian memoir that dissects the patterns of blame and shame women can form around their bodies and relationships
