This is fiction with that little bit extra. Kick off your shoes, make yourself a steaming hot chocolate (with full-fat milk and extra sugar), and settle in for a night of wicked indulgence. This collection of calorific stories by some of our greatest contemporary writers celebrates the curvaceous, the abundant and the plump. Raymond Carver tells of a waitress delivering food to the fattest man she's ever seen. George Saunders enters the world of the 400-pound CEO. And Peter Carey imagines a surreal fat-man revolution. From sci-fi geeks to business men, from heroes to nerds, these delicious short stories embrace our obsession with fat and thin, ensuring that you will never look at a person, or a cream cake, in quite the same way again.show more
