Landwhale: On Turning Insults Into Nicknames by Jes Baker
Jes Baker burst onto the body positivity scene when she created her own ads mocking Abercrombie & Fitch for discriminating against all body types. This memoir goes deeply into Jes's inner life, from growing up a fat girl to dating while fat, with material that will have readers laughing and crying. It is a deeply personal take, offering a glimpse at life as a fat woman today. It is also a reflection of the unforgiving ways our culture still treats fatness, all with Jes's biting voice as the guide.
