The Obsession: Reflections on the Tyranny of Slenderness
Publisher: Harper PerennialFormat: Paperback
“The Obsession” is a deeply committed and beautifully written analysis of our society's increasing demand that women be thin. It offers a careful, thought provoking discussion of the reasons men have encouraged this obsession and women have embraced it. It is a book about women's efforts to become thin rather than to accept the natural dimensions of their bodies—a book about the meaning of food and its rejection.
