Summary: Fat is a book about why the fat body has become so reviled and viewed as diseased the target of such intense discussion and debate about ways to reduce its size down to socially and medically acceptable dimensions. It is also about the lived experience of fat embodiment: how does it feel to be fat in a fat phobic society?
