Liza Palmer visits Pinky's Paperhaus to talk about her debut novel, Conversations With the Fat Girl. It's the story of two best friends who bond over being fat; as they grow up, one gets skinny (gastric bypass-- ew!) and the other doesn't. In case you were wondering, yep, it's chick lit -- not that there's anything wrong with that. She talks about dysfunctional friendships, how big is big, and her subgenre, Fat Girl Lit.
Liza grew up in Pasadena and talks, in the complete online interview, about her experience of working in downtown LA and making the decision to jump off the fast track to middle class and try her hand at being an author. It worked -- her novel is on 5 Spot, a division of Warner Books, and can be found at both your local bookstore and Target.
