A Book About Being Fat and NOT Dieting
Kinzel tells stories and gives advice on fashion, weight-loss drugs, self-love, eating disorders, how dieting affected her health, and her resulting gallstones.
I could relate to her story of shopping at the mall and feeling judged by other consumers— her experience with a group of humilating high school girls was all too excruciating! Anybody who's ever had a crappy day in the dressing room can relate to Kinzel's manifesto.
Feminist, loud and proud-- and unsparingly witty as well.

Voice doesn't match the author's tone and style
Would you try another book from Lesley Kinzel and/or Heather Henderson?
I'm a fan of Lesley's writing, so I'd read another book by her. Heather Henderson's reading was too earnest and one-note for this material - she didn't convey Lesley's humor or sarcasm or her sense of absurdity and outrage, and the book was boring to listen to.
What did you like best about this story?
It's honest and incisive.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Heather Henderson?
A woman with a more "edgy" voice to convey the author's sarcasm and indignation and sense of absurdity -- someone like Sarah Vowell.
