Scoot Over, Skinny: The Fat Nonfiction Anthology
Donna Jarrell (ed); Ira Sikrungruang (ed). In this collection of essays, nearly half of which are original to this anthology, some of our most lively, provocative writers explore the many folds of fat that make up reality. From David Sedaris’s hilarious assessment of his father’s fat prejudices in “A Shiner Like a Diamond” to Anne Lamott’s cathartic weight-loss remedies in “Hunger,” Pam Houston’s rich literary panorama in “Out of Habit, I Start Apologizing,” & psychiatrist Irvin Yalom’s deeply moving confrontation of his own biases in “Fat Lady,” in its unique way each piece deals with fat as a matter of fact. Sometimes funny, sometimes angry, often illuminating & always engaging, these writers make a new & compelling case for why we should make room for a bigger behind.
