Rabia Chaudry narrates her memoir about food, fatness, and self-acceptance in a welcoming voice that draws listeners right in. She describes the Pakistani food she grew up with in mouthwatering detail and shares stories from her childhood, both good and bad, in an emotional yet assured voice. She doesn't shy away from trauma, but she also makes space for joy, and it comes through in her narration, especially when she's writing about foods, people, and places she loves. Though Chaudry's story is her own to tell, and she does so with honesty and infectious humor, listeners should be aware that this is a story about weight loss. Chaudry posits fatness as a problem to be solved and doesn't address fatphobia or the systemic oppression fat people face. L.S. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
