Happy Fat

Author(s): Sofie Hagen

General | 2019 May New Releases

'I am a fat person and I love my body. I feel lucky to be able to say that. It has taken a lot of work and a lot of time to get here. I often meet people who are incredibly puzzled that I can love this body. Taking the world into account - how we are taught to see bodies and judge bodies - I understand the confusion. But I am quite sure I can explain it. I want to tell you what I have learned and how I got here.' In Happy Fat, comedian Sofie Hagen describes how she conquered a negative relationship with her body and provides practical tips for readers to do the same. She exposes how fatphobia is embedded in society at every level - in our relationships, our public spaces, and the TV shows we watch - powered by the toxic mix of capitalism and the media. Part-memoir, part-social commentary, in Happy Fat Sofie explains how she removed fatphobic influences from her daily life and found self-acceptance in a world where judgement and discrimination are rife - drawing wisdom from other Fat Liberation champions along the way. From shame and sex to airplane seats, love and getting stuck in public toilets, Happy Fat is a funny, angry and impassioned look at how taking up space in a culture that is desperate to reduce you can be radical, emboldening and life-changing.
