Publication year: 2017

ISBN: 9781471156908 (pbk.) :
In her series of open letters, Emily Clarkson addresses all manner of subjects and absurdities that impact on our modern-day lives. She unpicks the validity of notions such as 'the thigh gap'; writes a letter to the cellulite on her upper thigh; questions the merciless quotidian scrutiny of the Daily Mail ; ponders the etymology of the term 'plus size'; considers our unshakeable obsession with dieting and assesses why some of us are still crying in changing rooms. Writing with gumption, fearlessness and sharp wit, this is a window into the ridiculous ideologies and the remarkable expectations that shape women's lives today.
