Fed up with fat-phobia? Welcome to The Art of Overeating , the anti-diet bible that's chock-full of t-too-weighty wisdom. It flies in the face (t to mention the sucked-in gut) of our calorie-obsessed culture. Above all, it finds the funny bone in our culinary excess while offering reassurance that there's such thing as too much food. Interesting and informative food facts plus quotes from sources as disparate at George Bernard Shaw, Tommy Lasorda, Julia Child, and Mae West enliven the pages. The author's wry style makes it clear she's t endorsing gluttony but instead reminding us to have a little fun with our food. For those who love laughter, life and food, here's a treat worth indulging in - and it doesn't even contain a single calorie!
