Wake Up, Im Fat! by Camryn ManheimIn this New York Times-bestselling inspirational memoir, Camryn Manheim, Emmy Award-winning costar of The Practice, chronicles her journey from a self-hating, overweight teenager, who desperately wanted to fit in, to a self-loving, fat activist who is proud to be a misfit. Wake Up, Im Fat! shares her intelligent, candid, poignant, and often hilarious stories of being fat in a society obsessed with being thin.
Camryn takes us from her days as a motorcycle-riding hippie in Santa Cruz to her enrollment at New York Universitys prestigious school of drama--where Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner broke the unspoken theater rules of size by casting her in the role of the ingenue--and finally to Hollywood, where she dispelled the fallacy that large women cant be portrayed as sensual, sophisticated, and confident.
Camryns endearing honesty, sass, and razor-sharp wit will appeal to any reader who has ever felt like an outcast or yearned to make peace with their body.
