Review

deeply affecting, devastatingly raw, immensely authentic yet also, at times, ethereal

Anna's autobiography was a true pleasure to read. I found it deeply affecting, devastatingly raw, immensely authentic yet also, ethereal. Metanoia is written with a lyrical simplicity which mines great depths - exploring the human heart, weakness, brokenness, fracture, longing, and a woman's search for meaning. Naturally I was especially impacted by Anna's experience of having images from TV shows in which she starred, appropriated for evil intent ('What I felt I had gifted freely for the sake of art, was being received like pornography'). Anna shares her flaws and fallings with rare intimacy, making the discovery of grace and transfiguration into a new spiritual and earthly way of life even more entrancing. I cannot recall the last time I was so moved by a personal before-and-after narrative of radical transformation.

Product Description

Perhaps we have done to our bodies what we have so long done to God?
We have demanded they conform to the image we find the most desirable.
We have treated them as rubbish bins, weapons and punching bags.
We have muted their wills until their voices have fallen silent.

At 23, Anna McGahan was wrestling with the rest of the world for ownership of her femininity, sexuality and physicality. As a young actor thrust into the spotlight as a poster girl for sexual liberation – intent on exploring the next relationship, the lowest weight and the wildest high – her path pointed her to chaos, starvation and isolation.
Until – unexpectedly – she met God.
In this memoir, Anna shares the story of reconciling with her body, mapping its journey from another product in a marketplace, to a vessel of inherent power and worth.
Metanoia is the cry of a body broken and resurrected, the song of a bird set free.
