About the Author

Lesley Kinzel has been engaging with body politics and social justice activism for well over a decade. She co-founded and moderated the blog Fatshionista for five years (2005-2010), which has turned her into an online celebrity in the communities of fat acceptance, fashion, and women's issues.

She is a regular contributor to the online magazine, xo.Jane. Over the years Kinzel has become the go-to fatty for all things fat fashion, and fat pop culture and has been quoted on ABC News, CNN, the Guardian, the Boston Globe, the New York Post, and the New York Times.


"This accessible blend of memoir and cultural theory is a lifeline and a love letter; one is better off in the world for having read it."--Marianne Kirby, coauthor of Lessons From the Fat-o-Sphere

"Two Whole Cakes is a vulnerable, funny, whip-smart, incendiary book that offers a delightfully readable way out of our culture's unrealistic expectations of body size and appearance."--Hanne Blank, author of Big Big Love

"Every single page of this book contains an AHA! moment. Two Whole Cakes is super empowering and fun to read--you seriously can't put it down. I've read it twice, and I'm keeping it for my daughter." --Jane Pratt, founding editor of xoJane and Sassy

"I am extremely grateful that Lesley Kinzel is flooding cyberspace with provocative conversations about the political, financial, emotional, and spiritual struggles resulting from America's obsession with weight." --Camryn Manheim, author of Wake Up, I'm Fat!
