3/5/04 VENUS OF CHALK, a new novel by Susan Stinson, will be released by Firebrand Books on International No Diet Day, May 6, 2004. The novel is about an unapologetic fat woman pursuing her sense of self on a bus trip from Massachusetts to Texas. The book has been praised by Elizabeth McCracken, Hanne Blank, Lesléa Newman, Sondra Solovay and Alison Smith. Alison Bechdel says that it “unravels what you think you know about women and men, the freakish and the normal, shame and salvation – then mends it anew into a most surprising story.”
