About the Book
A photography filled monologue book that takes a unique and introspective look at some of women's relationship to food and her self esteem through the eyes of various characters. Each of the monologues was inspired by actual events and feelings from women around the world who contributed answers to anonymous surveys. Collaborating with Chicago photographer John Abbott, the writer then becomes the model, revealing her vulnerable side in front of the camera to embody each character.
