Eat Fat - Richard Klein

Picador, 1997, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Gently bruised at head of spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the DJ.

From the cover: “In this tour de force the author traces the older, positive meanings of the word ‘fat’. He analyzes ‘the thing fat’, discussing not only the aesthetics of fat but also the nature of fat (including the latest medical findings). He examines ‘fat sex’ including representations of the human body designed to arouse people whose taste in beauty is fat. And he explores ‘political fat’ i.e. the relation of fat to power.”
