Praise for my book “Fat Girl”October 23rd, 2011 | Posted by in News
Any author who has a book positively reviewed or mentioned by a publication is lucky indeed. I’ve been abundantly fortunate in this respect, my book Fat Girl being a shining example. Please take the time to visit my author page to find out more about the book. Here is a taste of the generosity I received for the work:
“A poetic, funny, deeply touching look at the problem of overeating…O’Garden’s poetry glistens.” — The Denver Post
“Ohmigod this book rules! Her story is so compelling and soulfully written that it almost made me cry. I love books like that.” — Sassy Magazine
“Very moving. I couldn’t put down. I was impressed with the writing and the way O’Garden was able to write from inside addiction and make the mechanics of addiction clear. I know this is one of the books I’ll be buying by the dozen to give to people.” — Ellen Burstyn
“The pain and anger of overweight is clearly delineated, and the struggle over power and powerlessness is presented in a quite poetic, dramatic way. O’Garden teaches us about addiction without being preachy or seeking converts. Her simple statements arise from secret thoughts and deceits and thus show the crisis of personal integrity that a fat person suffers.” — Judi Hollis, author of FAT AS A FAMILY AFFAIR and FAT & FURIOUS, and director of Hollis Institute
“..a painfully honest little book, illustrated by the author and told in prose, poetry, aphorisms and no small amount of anguish.” — The Oregonian
