The Girls at 17 Swann Street

A Novel
Written by Yara Zgheib | Narrated by Saskia Maarleveld
A “lyrical, dream-like” novel (Booklist) that Publishers Weekly calls “impressive” and “deeply moving.” Anna moves to Missouri for the man of her dreams — but when her own demons start to overwhelm her, she’s admitted as a patient at 17 Swann Street. There, along with other girls who struggle with life-threatening disorders, Anna must find the courage and endurance to heal…

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Yara Zgheib’s poetic and poignant debut novel is a haunting portrait of a young woman’s struggle with anorexia on an intimate journey to reclaim her life.

The chocolate went first, then the cheese, the fries, the ice cream. The bread was more difficult, but if she could just lose a little more weight, perhaps she would make the soloists’ list. Perhaps if she were lighter, danced better, tried harder, she would be good enough. Perhaps if she just ran for one more mile, lost just one more pound.

Anna Roux was a professional dancer who followed the man of her dreams from Paris to Missouri. There, alone with her biggest fears — imperfection, failure, loneliness — she spirals down anorexia and depression till she weighs a mere eighty-eight pounds. Forced to seek treatment, she is admitted as a patient at 17 Swann Street, a peach pink house where pale, fragile women with life-threatening eating disorders live. Women like Emm, the veteran; quiet Valerie; Julia, always hungry. Together, they must fight their diseases and face six meals a day.

Every bite causes anxiety. Every flavor induces guilt. And every step Anna takes toward recovery will require strength, endurance, and the support of the girls at 17 Swann Street.
