Waterstones Says

Bold, ardent and compassionate, Happy Fat is an empowering account of a journey into self-acceptance. Drawing from her own experiences of fatphobic abuse, Hagen takes a hatchet to the toxic beauty standards and endless pressures to fit in in this liberating read that brims with perceptive social commentary.

In Happy Fat, comedian Sofie Hagen shares how she removed fatphobic influences from her daily life and found self-acceptance in a world where judgement and discrimination are rife. From shame and sex to airplane seats, love and getting stuck in public toilets, Sofie provides practical tips for readers.

Part memoir, part social commentary, Happy Fat is a funny, angry and impassioned look at how taking up space can be radical, emboldening and life-changing.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘This book is for anyone who has ever felt out of place in the world … Sofie Hagen is who we don’t deserve but we all need’ Lena Dunham ‘This book is the fat best friend you wished you had before endlessly trying to fit in’ Scottee ‘I loved every single word of this masterpiece! … I want to hug every page, and shout it from the rooftops. It explains so beautifully what it is to be fat … the shame you experience and but also the utter joy of learning to love yourself and to see through the lies’ Helen Thorn, Scummy Mummies ‘As an old-school stand-up of the self-deprecating variety, I found Sofie’s book fascinating and it’s introduced to me a whole new school of thought’ Jo Brand
