Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia is an autobiography written by Marya Hornbacher, detailing her fourteen-year battle with eating disorders. Published by Random House in 1998, Wasted was a critical and commercial success. The author's young age (she wrote the book at the age of 21) surprised many readers, and the memoir was praised for its maturity and candor.

Wasted was shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize in 1998, and has since gone on to sell over a million copies in the United States alone, as well as being translated into fourteen different languages.
