Dr Fat

ByShirley Andrews

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Jean Barnett is fat but happy. After all, she has always been fat and yet she was the first girl in her school form to be married. Her handsome husband is a successful journalist, kind and tolerant of her size. Their three children, like all young children, are lovely. But then Tom is promoted and they must move to South Africa and fat Jean finds herself surrounded by long leggy women, like greyhounds, who regard her with pity and scorn. This is a 1970s South Africa where apartheid is still rife, a hot alien country. Jean finds life hateful. She knows no-one and for the first time in her life she finds herself sickened by her own appearance. She must get thin, must be like the rest, at any cost. Once she is thin all her problems will be solved. But will they or will they be replaced by others far more insoluble? This is a page-turner of a book. Read it!
