Lauredhel at Hoyden About Town has tipped us off to the excellent book Australian Feminism: a companion on sale for just $20 at Clouston and Hall. Also at the ever-fabulous C&H are three books on fat rights and fat womens’ experiences:
- Bodies Out of Bounds: Fatness and Transgression edited by Jana Evans Braziel and Kathleen LeBesco, $9.95
- Fat Girl: A true story by Judith Moore, $7.95
- The Fat Girl’s Guide to Life by Wendy Shankar, $12.95
They also have the updated double edition of Fat is a Feminist Issue 1 and 2 by Susie Orbach for $9.95, which is not quite size-acceptance – it’s mostly about compulsive overeating and Orbach’s method of overcoming it – but it does have some worthwhile observations in it.
I was in the store today and they have a pretty good range of feminist books – including one on women in the Renaissance, which I might also pick up later as I spent my book budget for this week on Australian Feminsim and Bodies Out of Bounds. If you’re in Australia, the postage is pretty cheap: buy now!
