Hungry

plus-size-model-crystal-renn-releases-book-called-hungryI just came across this book and it’s a must have for me.  Some of the reviews on Amazon include:

“An eye-opening tale for all women, Hungry explores the difference between the fantasy that society projects and the reality of what makes us happy. Crystal Renn’s experience debunks the modern-day Cinderella story of the fat girl who loses weight to get happy. This is a new fairy tale, one in which a young woman embraces the size she’s supposed to be and the world opens up for her.” — Lori Gottlieb, author of Stick Figure: A Diary of My Former Self

“Crystal Renn is a high-spirited, convincing spokesperson for broadening our notions of beauty. Hungry adds a unique twist to a growing women’s chorus: even if you are young and beautiful, as Renn is, it’s best to give up the addiction to slimness for the sake of personal authenticity, social relations, intimacy, and sexual pleasure.” — Joan Jacobs Brumberg, author of The Body Project and Fasting Girls

Hungry offers an intelligent and intimate look inside the modeling industry and into Crystal Renn’s heart. Renn’s epiphany — that she didn’t have to be a size 0 to find success and happiness — serves as a more powerful portrait of strength and beauty than anything a camera could capture.” — Wendy Shanker, author of The Fat Girl’s Guide to Life

I promise to write my own review after I get it into my hand.  You can buy it online here.

One thought on “Hungry

  1. I’ve always been a fan of plus-size models! There’s a great site with many images of Crystal and other plus-size models here:

    They’re all gorgeous.

    The site’s forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.
