Graphic Novel | Non-Fiction Biography
The most entertaining take yet on America's #1 obsession.
An outrageous graphic autobiography with
illustrations by Mary Wilshire-a top Marvel Comics
artist-Fat Free is the story of the (formerly)
supersized Jude Milner's harrowing and hilarious adventures:
freaking out in candy stores, following quack cures and
diets, becoming a "Fat Is Beautiful" activist, working as a
phone-sex fantasy girl with multiple personas, and finally
undergoing gastric bypass surgery. Milner's true story of
struggle and triumph is nuanced rather than pat. She never
becomes waif-slender, but does become thinner and happier- a
physically strong, self-confident, and healthy woman who has
replaced self-loathing with self-confidence. She takes the
grit, the grime, the taunts-"I don't want her/You can have
her/She's too fat for me"-and transforms herself into a
crusader: Milner creates a unique program in which women
struggling with their weight can come for psychological
counseling and personal fitness training. Never predictable,
never self-pitying, Fat Free is sustained by a sense
of humor and stunning visuals throughout.
