What Are You Looking At? An Anthology of Fat Fiction

Synopsis

What Are You Looking At? An Anthology of Fat Fiction by Donna Jarrell

This is fiction with that little bit extra. Kick off your shoes, make yourself a steaming hot chocolate (with full-fat milk and extra sugar), and settle in for a night of wicked indulgence. This collection of calorific stories by some of our greatest contemporary writers celebrates the curvaceous, the abundant and the plump. Raymond Carver tells of a waitress delivering food to the fattest man she's ever seen. George Saunders enters the world of the 400-pound CEO. And Peter Carey imagines a surreal fat-man revolution. From sci-fi geeks to business men, from heroes to nerds, these delicious short stories embrace our obsession with fat and thin, ensuring that you will never look at a person, or a cream cake, in quite the same way again.
