From an award-winning author comes a darkly riveting, compulsively readable and, at times, heartbreaking memoir by a brilliant writer who is obsessed with food - and with being fat. Fat Girl shares a powerfully honest account of obesity that, until now, no one else has been brave enough to tell, an account that will appeal to the millions of girls and women (and not a few men) who have a love/hate relationship with food and their bodies, and anyone who has knowingly (or unconsciously) used food to try to fill the hole in their heart and soothe the craggy edges of their psyche.show more

Review quote

'Judith Moore writes with unblinking candour about being fat - but that is just the surface. This is a book about the ravages of love.' 'A book of painful and ferocious eloquence.' 'Tragic, fearless and fascinating.' Those are just some of the pre-publication quotes given to this remarkable memoir.show more
