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.
