Description

By the author of Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls and a heroine of the body image movement, an intimate, gutsy memoir about being a fat woman

Jes Baker burst onto the body positivity scene when she created her own ads mocking Abercrombie & Fitch for discriminating against all body types - -a move that landed her on the Today show and garnered a loyal following for her raw, honest, and attitude-filled blog missives.

Building on the manifesta power of Things, this memoir goes deeply into Jes' inner life, from growing up a fat girl to dating while fat. With material that will have readers laughing and crying along with Jes' experience, this new book is a natural fit with her irreverent, open-book style.

A deeply personal take, Landwhale is a glimpse at life as a fat woman today, but it's also a reflection of the unforgiving ways our culture still treats fatness, all with Jes' biting voice as the guide.

Critiques

"Jes Baker's words are ointment for the soul. I want to give this book to every person who's ever struggled with their body and its place in this world. Read this book. Thank me later." (Julie Murphy, number one New York Times best-selling author of Dumplin’')

"It's tempting to call Jes Baker 'fearless,' but to do so would diminish her profound capacity for vulnerability and, by extension, her strength. The thing that makes Jes such a force is that she is so brave, so funny, so blazing, so herself, even in the face of fear. I do not know what we would do without her." (Lindy West, New York Times best-selling author of Shrill)

"With the perfect tidal wave of humor and candid emotion, Jes once again shows me how to not only love my own body, but every body around me, as well. It's as if she's written Landwhale about the daily complicated love affair I have in my skin, and I'll never stop reading it. All women, at all stages of their journey, must read this book!" (Brittany Gibbons, New York Times best-selling author of Fat Girl Walking and The Clothes Make the Girl (Look Fat)?)

Hilarious and Touching all at the same time

The brutal honesty of the author made this book so incredibly genuine that you can't help but relate to her. This book taught me a lot about myself and what a long journey it is to find body liberation. I will never forget the Jes Baker Ice Cream only diet and what it teaches us about diet culture. You need to read this book right now. Do it.

Perfect dichotomous pitch

I began reading Landwhale relaxing in a bathtub. As I read I wept, I laughed, I wanted crawl out my skin and scream in celebration from the proverbial mountaintop. Jes’s narrative spoke to so many nuanced aspects of my life. I found listening to the book gave me a deeper appreciation for her uncanny wit and profoundly intentional scaffolding. Jes speaks to the inner workings of living in a fat body threaded with the life altering exhaustion that comes with living out loud on public forums for the sake of personal and social impact. She did a beautiful job of bridging intersectional analysis in ways that invited a more universal understanding of oppression. I cannot recommend This book enough. I hope those who live in more normative bodies choose to read it, they and the world will be better for it!

Jes Baker Strikes Again - My Heroine!

I ate this book up! Jes Baker is smart, funny, educated and completely enthralling. This book not only would appeal to a plus-sized woman but to anyone that likes to read a story about a fascinating person and experience. That said, if you aren't plus-sized, Jes Baker will make you wish you were JUST LIKE HER because she's AWESOME.
