Description: For any woman who has ever had a love/hate relationship with food and with how she looks; for anyone who has knowingly or unconsciously used food to try to fill the hole in his heart or soothe the craggy edges of his psyche, Fat Girlis a brilliantly rendered, angst-filled coming-of-age story of gain and loss. From the lush descriptions of food that call to mind the writings of M.F. K.Fisher at her finest, to the heartbreaking accounts of Moores deep longing for family and a sense of belonging and love, Fat Girlstuns and shocks, saddens and tickles. Frank, often funnyintelligent and entertaining. Vick Boughton, People(four out of four stars) Moores unflinching memoir sets a new standard for literature about women and their bodies. Grade:A. Jennifer Reese, Entertainment Weekly(editors choice) Searingly honest without affectation . . . Moore emerged fromher hellish upbringing as a kind of softer Diane Arbus, wielding pen instead of camera. Kimberly Marlowe Hartnett, The Seattle Times Stark . . . lyrical, and often funny, Judith Moore ambushes you on the very first page, and in short order has lifted you up and broken your heart. Peg Tyre, Newsweek God, I love this book. It is wise, funny, painful, revealing, and profoundly honest. Anne Lamott Judith Moore grabs the reader by the collar, and shakes up our notion of life in the fat lane. David Sedaris A slap-in-the-face of a bookcourageous, heartbreaking, fascinating, and darkly funny. Augusten Burroughs
