*** The Elephant in the Room by Tommy Tomlinson

The Elephant in the Room: One Fat Man’s Quest to Get Smaller in a Growing America┬ástarts with a startlingly candid self-assessment of the author’s body as a sphere, he who can only shop in the one store that carries size 6X clothes, and has trouble fitting into restaurant booths, or climb stairs. Shaken his sister’s death, he undertakes a slow diet and describes his progress, along with his life as a journalist and husband, and various observations of what it’s like to live in a very large body. It’s a good story for thin people to read.
