Passing for Thin: Losing Half My Weight and Finding My Self
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungAn intimate and darkly comic memoir of a woman who does a 180 with her body.
When she was in her early forties, Frances Kuffel lost half her body weight. In "Passing for Thin," Frances describes with unflinching honesty and a wickedly dark sense of humor her first fumbling introductions to her newly slender body, shining a light on the shared human experience of feeling uncomfortable in one's own skin. She gradually moves from observer to player--enjoying for the first time flirting, exercising, and shopping-as she explores the terrain on the "Planet of Thin." As Frances gradually comes to know--and love--the stranger in the mirror, she learns that her body does not define her, but enables her to become the woman she's always wanted to be.
