The amazing Alison Bechdel gave a shout-out to Martha Mooday in Elle.com's book column. She picked it as the book with the best opening line, and wrote something really gorgeous about it. "The first sentence is magnificent in the way it's a microcosm of the whole book, as well as a glimpse at the way Stinson writes so beautifully about fat bodies..." That gives me an enormous amount of joy. The whole list is full of books I love.
Everyone should check out Alison's new book The Secret to Superhuman Strength, too!
