About the Book

This anthology of thirty works by some of our best contemporary American writers looks at our perennial American obsession: fat. It's everywhere, all around you, and maybe even on you. Now, America's consuming passion at last has its own anthology. From Andre Dubus's delicious story of a young woman more comfortable in her fat body than her thin one
(The Fat Girl), to Tobias Wolff's tale of bonding over pancakes (Hunters in the Snow), Dorothy Allison's poem about food and love (Dumpling Child), Peter Carey's surreal tale of a fat-man revolution (The Fat Man in History), Wesley McNair's poetic celebration Fat Heaven, and George Saunders's The 400-pound CEO, this bountiful feast of fiction and poetry will ensure no reader ever looks at fat quite the same way again.
