Description - Passing for Thin by Kuffel Frances

An intimate and darkly comic memoir of a woman who does a 180 with her body. When she was in her early forties, Frances Kuffel lost half her body weight. In Passing for Thin , Frances describes with unflinching honesty and a wickedly dark sense of humor her first fumbling introductions to her newly slender body, shining a light on the shared human experience of feeling uncomfortable in one s own skin. She gradually moves from observer to player enjoying for the first time flirting, exercising, and shopping as she explores the terrain on the Planet of Thin. As Frances gradually comes to know and love the stranger in the mirror, she learns that her body does not define her, but enables her to become the woman she s always wanted to be."
