Description

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

Lizzie doesn't like 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 and pounds dropped, navigating double-edged validation from her mother, her friends, her husband and her own reflection in the mirror. But no matter how much she loses, will she ever see herself as anything other than a fat girl?

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

'Luminous... Full of sharp insight and sly humour' KATHERINE HEINY. 'Honest, searing and necessary' ELLE.
