Description

The first full-length collection of poems from Rachel Wiley, whose work spans from body image, to love and loss, and feminism. Fat Girl Finishing School is a love letter to Wiley’s living body. When confronted with fatphobia, racism, misogyny, and shame each poem chooses self love, despite society’s expectations of conformity. More than just a book about one single identity, Fat Girl Finishing School makes intersectionality dimensional. This is a book steeped in experience, every story is striking, powerful, and unmistakably palpable.

Praise for Fat Girl Finishing School

Fat Girl Finishing School overtook me. I don’t know what else to say.

It left me both weeping in public and snapping my fingers alone…and I can’t think of another book of poetry that’s ever done the same.

Fat girls of the world will find their voice through Wiley’s brilliance, and we all owe her for that.
