Book Description

6 Sep 2012 Body Gossip
The Body Gossip book is an anthology of more than 300 short body stories written by real people from all over the UK. There are poems, prose and dialogues written about everything body image related including pregnancy, diets, sport, ageing, adolescence, eating disorders, ethnicity, sexuality and disability. The stories are candid, at times funny, often controversial and always inspiring. The book includes a foreword by Gok Wan, as well as entries from a number of high profile celebrities and politicians including Alesha Dixon, Anne Diamond, Nikki Grahame, Craig Revel-Horwood, Jermain Defoe and MP Lynne Featherstone. No matter your gender, age, race, size or shape, you'll find a Body Gossip story you can relate to. The award-winning Body Gossip campaign has been collecting body stories from the public since 2006, transforming them into theatre shows, short online films and the Body Gossip book. In doing so, Body Gossip aims to promote diversity and acceptance in the field of body image. Any profit Body Gossip makes from the sale of the book will go directly towards furthering this message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing read 8 Oct 2012
By Sarah S
Body Gossip the Book is an amazing and inspirational read. It takes you on a journey you can relate to, some stories will make you laugh, some make you shed a tear, but all in all, the stories will remind you that just by being you is what makes you AMAZING and unique. Wave goodbye to the stresses of daily life full of media influences...and say hello to reality. I highly recommend this book. It's good to turn to when you're having a bit of a rubbish day, it reminds you that you are not the only person in the world having the same thoughts/feelings/hang ups and that you are not alone. :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Recognition 27 Oct 2012
The book dispells the notion that Body Gossip is trivial ('does my bum look big in this'), telling true stories of individual thoughts and happenings. Well done, all the hard work has come to a successful conclusion.
