Virgie Tovar is a fierce fatty to be reckoned with. And her new book, Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls On Life, Love & Fashion, is truly wonderful. If you want to read something that will literally make you laugh, cry, and change your life, get your hands on this one. (The book even features two Persephone Mag regulars – Dr. Deah and me!)
I got on the phone with Virgie to talk about getting the book published, public response, and of course, what it was like to be on the
Tracy Turnblad Ricki Lake Show. Check it out here!
