An ironic, funny, moving collection of autobiographical nuggets. A wonderful narrative non-fiction collection from beloved plus-size smartmouth Cheryl Peck, for anyone who grew up thinking they didn't fit in. After years of buying exercise equipment which ended up gathering dust on her back porch, Cheryl Peck has finally decided she is in shape - and her shape is round. Now, in new stories about the dilemmas, dramas, heartbreaks and joys that make a life, she tells the unvarnished truth behind her childhood as a junior-school paste eater, being a gay woman in America's heartland and trying to understand - or, better yet, escape - her relatives. From the time she asked her mother "Mom - am I beautiful?" and got the answer "God no - whatever gave you that idea" to her side-splitting take on menopausal memory loss, Peck is ironic, funny, moving and honest. A wonderful book for anyone and everyone who dreaded their graduation ball and loves the idea of a larger than life lady thumbing her nose at the world while she laughs at herself.
