Body Talk: 37 Voices Explore Our Radical Anatomy (Paperback)
We all experience the world in a body, but we don’t usually take the time to explore what it really means to have and live within one. Just as every person has a unique personality, every person has a unique body, and every body tells its own story.
In Body Talk, thirty-seven writers, models, actors, musicians, and artists share essays, lists, comics, and illustrations—about everything from size and shape to scoliosis, from eating disorders to cancer, from sexuality and gender identity to the use of makeup as armor. Together, they contribute a broad variety of perspectives on what it’s like to live in their particular bodies—and how their bodies have helped to inform who they are and how they move through the world.
Come on in, turn the pages, and join the celebration of our diverse, miraculous, beautiful bodies!

"Jensen expertly organizes these stories into chapters on a common theme. The experiences are relayed with equal parts honesty and knowledge. A must-have anthology collection on an evergreen topic." — SLJ, starred review
"Together, [the] contributions not only emphasize acceptance and self-love but reclaim identities like 'fat' and 'disabled' and span across gender, gender identity, race, and other intersections. Readers will find many commonalities among all these differences and may begin to embrace those differences in others and, most importantly, in themselves." — Booklist
"Each author fully and impressively engages with their intersecting identities and the ways in which these intersections affect the way their bodies are treated by society. The anthology is a comprehensive, compulsively readable guide to growing into our bodies in a politically fraught world. A thoughtful, well-rounded anthology featuring diverse voices speaking out on essential topics." — Kirkus Reviews
