13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl [9781788549684]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'A beautiful, necessary book' ROXANE GAY.
'Echoes of Margaret Atwood's The Edible Woman' IRISH TIMES.

Growing up in the suburban hell of Misery Saga, Lizzie has never liked the way she looks. Though she dates guys online, she's afraid to send pictures: no-one wants a fat girl. So Lizzie starts to lose weight. With punishing drive, she counts almonds consumed, miles run, pounds dropped, navigating double-edged validation from her mother, her friends, her husband, her reflection in the mirror. But no matter how much she loses, will she ever see herself as anything other than a fat girl?

In her darkly funny, deeply resonant and shocking debut novel, Mona Awad delivers a tender and moving depiction of a lovably difficult young woman whose life is hijacked by her struggle to conform.

'Devastating' EMERALD STREET.
'Honest, searing and necessary' ELLE.
