Fat, Pretty And Soon To Be Old

Fat, Pretty And Soon To Be Old

9781849353670

Fat, Pretty, and Soon to be Old is a moving, funny, and startlingly frank collection of personal essays about what it means to look a certain way. Or rather, certain ways.

Navigating Kimberly Dark’s experience of being fat since childhood―as well as queer, white-privileged, a gender-confirming “girl with a pretty face,” active then disabled, and inevitably ageing―each piece blends storytelling and social analysis to deftly coax readers into a deeper understanding of how appearance privilege (and stigma) function in everyday life and how the architecture of this social world constrains us. At the same time, she provides a blueprint for how each of us can build a more just social world, one interaction at a time.

Includes an afterword by Health at Every Size expert, Linda Bacon.
