About the Book

"Unbearable Weight is brilliant. From an immensely knowledgeable feminist perspective, in engaging, jargonless (!) prose, Bordo analyzes a whole range of issues connected to the body-weight and weight loss, exercise, media images, movies, advertising, anorexia and bulimia, and much more-in a way that makes sense of our current social landscape-finally! This is a great book for anyone who wonders why women's magazines are always describing delicious food as 'sinful' and why there is a cake called Death by Chocolate. Loved it!"-Katha Pollitt, Nation columnist and author of Subject to Debate: Sense and Dissents on Women, Politics, and Culture (2001)
About the Author: Susan Bordo is Singletary Chair in the Humanities and Professor of English and Women's Studies at the University of Kentucky.
