    Exante TS was using Xenical and eating low fat and low cal. Exante baby!!!
    I really didn't get into her novel The Girls, however I've just finished this, The Wife's Tale and I loved it!


    On the eve of her wedding anniversary, Mary Gooch is waiting for her husband to come home, listening for his car along the dark, icy roads. As the night draws on, and he fails to appear, Mary reflects on the true nature of their marriage: the secrets, the silences, and the unmentionable yet inescapable fact that for each loss and disappointment, there has been a corresponding physical gain: the woman she once was is now imprisoned in mountainous flesh. The Wife's Tale is the inspirational story of the journey Mary is finally forced to make across a continent, ostensibly in search of her husband, but eventually towards the self she has buried for too long.

    Mary Gooch is a forty-something woman, living in small-town Canada with her husband, Jimmy Gooch. She’s outrageously fat and is severely hindered by her physical condition. She has problems walking any distance, can’t reach her own feet, and is very lethargic...
