In these poignant, insightful essays, writer Evette Dionne shares her experiences as a fat Black woman in a world that vilifies fat people. Her narration is beautifully matched to the content and tone of her audiobook--it's comfortable and inviting but urgent. She's not fooling around. In fact, she writes about life-or-death issues, including the way medicine and doctors often fail fat people. But she's having a good time, too. She makes observations on such topics as the ins and outs of fat representation in the media, the joy her body brings her, and the moments of fun and connection she's found despite society's repeated message that she not take up space. This audiobook takes up space in all the best ways, and will leave listeners with plenty to think about. L.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
