A clean softcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-library book: Every extra pound tells a story . . . At five four and 230 pounds, film cri tic Jami Bernard took the plunge into what she half-jokingly calls "the hea rt of darkness"- her innermost self, where, by confronting a past both funn y and painful, she was able to let go of those pounds, one by one, week aft er week. At the end of this intensely personal, bitterly humorous journey, she had lost seventy-five of them. Jami chronicled her weight loss in the New York Daily News, where she was a film critic for thirteen years. This book goes behind the scenes to tell t he unvarnished truth of what it's like to live large in a body-obsessed cul ture that takes no prisoners. Here is the reality of weight loss: a stock-m arket chart of crazy gains and losses, a crumb trail of doomed relationship s, the terrors of pleasure, and the best pizza this side of Naples. With a sharp wit and the confident, easy style that makes her a nationally known c ritic and champion of women's issues, Jami candidly explores the secret wor ld of fat people-their fears, bodies, clothing; their forbidden love affair with food; and what it's like to leave that all behind and emerge thin aga in on the other side. Moving, sometimes shocking, and always mordantly funny, The Incredible Shrinking Critic takes it all off-seventy-five pounds and counting.
