Beauty Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The acclaimed author of Eggshell Skull.
You were either fit and trim or you weren't working hard enough. Your body was how you conveyed wealth and status to your peers, it was a personality trait, a symbol of goodness and values: an ethical ideal. In recent decades women have made momentous progress fighting the patriarchy, yet they are held to ever-stricter, more punishing physical standards. Self-worth still plummets, and eating disorders are more deadly for how easily they are dismissed.
In Beauty Bri Lee explores our obsession with thinness and asks how an intrinsically unattainable standard of physical 'perfection' has become so crucial to so many. What happens if you try to reach that impossible goal? Bri did try, and Beauty is what she learned from that battle: a gripping and intelligent rejection of an ideal that diminishes us all.

Such an interesting little book. Written as an essay, Bri Lee invites us into her mind and her experiences. Written with full honesty from her personal experiences this is one of those books that will give insight and hopefully turn you away from the world of distorted eating and the like. I absolutely love this cover and the size of the book (small square shape) makes it quite cute.
