Description
 
Richard Klein (au). A keen cultural dissection of a major American obsession. While there is ample evidence that fat is unhealthy for some, for the vast majority of us the risks involved in combating it must be seriously evaluated. Cheeky & playful yet devastating for its insights, Eat Fat intends nothing less than a revolution in how we think about this complex issue. Traces the older, positive meanings of the word fat, discussing not only the aesthetics of fat but also the nature of fat. Examines “fat sex,” including representations of the human body designed to arouse people whose taste in beauty is fat. Explores “political fat,” i.e., the relation of fat to power. B&W photos.
