Inhaltsangabe

By the author of Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls and a heroine of the body image movement, an intimate, gutsy memoir about being a fat woman

Jes Baker burst onto the body positivity scene when she created her own ads mocking Abercrombie & Fitch for discriminating against all body types - -a move that landed her on the Today show and garnered a loyal following for her raw, honest, and attitude-filled blog missives.

Building on the manifesta power of Things, this memoir goes deeply into Jes' inner life, from growing up a fat girl to dating while fat. With material that will have readers laughing and crying along with Jes' experience, this new book is a natural fit with her irreverent, open-book style.

A deeply personal take, Landwhale is a glimpse at life as a fat woman today, but it's also a reflection of the unforgiving ways our culture still treats fatness, all with Jes' biting voice as the guide.

Kritikerstimmen

"Jes Baker's words are ointment for the soul. I want to give this book to every person who's ever struggled with their body and its place in this world. Read this book. Thank me later." (Julie Murphy, number one New York Times best-selling author of Dumplin’')

"It's tempting to call Jes Baker 'fearless,' but to do so would diminish her profound capacity for vulnerability and, by extension, her strength. The thing that makes Jes such a force is that she is so brave, so funny, so blazing, so herself, even in the face of fear. I do not know what we would do without her." (Lindy West, New York Times best-selling author of Shrill)

"With the perfect tidal wave of humor and candid emotion, Jes once again shows me how to not only love my own body, but every body around me, as well. It's as if she's written Landwhale about the daily complicated love affair I have in my skin, and I'll never stop reading it. All women, at all stages of their journey, must read this book!" (Brittany Gibbons, New York Times best-selling author of Fat Girl Walking and The Clothes Make the Girl (Look Fat)?)
