Happy Fat: Taking Up Space in a World That Wants to Shrink You

by Sofie Hagen
£12.99   hardback  HarperCollins Publishers (Fourth Estate (2019)

Happy Fat: Taking Up Space in a World That Wants to Shrink You by Sofie Hagen ‘I am a fat person and I love my body. I feel lucky to be able to say that – it has taken a lot of work and a lot of time. I want to tell you what I have learned and how I got here.’
 
In Happy Fat, comedian Sofie Hagen shares how she removed fatphobic influences from her daily life and found self-acceptance in a world where judgement and discrimination are rife.
 
From shame and sex to airplane seats, love and getting stuck in public toilets, Sofie provides practical tips for readers – drawing wisdom from other Fat Liberation champions along the way.
 
Part memoir, part social commentary, Happy Fat is a funny, angry and impassioned look at how taking up space in a culture that is desperate to reduce you can be radical, emboldening and life-changing.
