Reviews

'A beautifully written collection of stories, poems, pieces that does so much more than just celebrate different bodies, this book poetically and stoically lays claim to the space that we've been told to avoid at all costs. This book is an exploration of the freedoms and reclaimed joys that feel as if they were stolen from us. Important stuff!'--Juno Roche
Fat and Queer introduces a new generation of writers creating intersectional fat culture. It is a fine feast of life stories and poems exploring fat, sexuality, race and gender. As someone who has spent their life nurturing a movement of fat queers and trans people, I can't express how satisfying it is to see the work grow and bloom.--Dr Charlotte Cooper, Psychotherapist, Author Fat Activism: A Radical Social Movement, Fat & Proud: The Politics of Size and Obesity Timebomb
Reading "Fat and Queer" was a breath of fresh air for me. So many stories truly touched my heart and made me reflect on my own experiences. These stories were written with so much honesty and depth, the whole book was a joy to read.--Essie Dennis
Fat & Queer presents readers with a vibrant collection of diverse, often-silenced voices that speak to the extraordinary resilience and tenacity that allows these writers to thrive in a world that rarely celebrates or affirms their identities. A necessary addition to an ever-expanding literature of the body and the new queer canon.--Amy Long, author of Codependence and winner of the 2018 CSU Poetry Center Essay Collection Competition
