    Publisher's Summary “I am fat,” begins Judith Moore’s unflinching account of her life. As she describes her obsessions with food, struggles with self image and troubled relationships, she refuses to become an object of pity. Moore is the recipient of two NEA grants and a Guggenheim fellowship. "The Fat Girl" is a short story by a master of the form, Andre Dubus. The title refers to the protagonist, Louise, and the story covers her experiences from childhood through adulthood. It's worth.

    Praise “Honest, searing, and necessary.” —Elle “Simultaneously tart and tender, 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl is stunning The way food and body image define Elizabeth’s life is depressing and the book is neither. There is so much humor here — much of it dark, but spot on, like Dolores in Wally Lamb’s She’s Come Undone or Lena Dunham in Girls.”.   Here's a list, in categories, of my favorite books that are either about fat people, feature fat people, or are non fat-shaming! I hope there's something for everyone on this list, but please.
