A new novel by Patricia Leavy. Low-Fat Love is a novel about identity-building and self-acceptance and is pertinent to many college courses.
The book is informed by a decade of interview research with young women and teaching about gender, relationships and popular culture. While written in a fun, chick-lit voice Low-Fat Love is underscored with a critical commentary about female identity-building and self-acceptance and how, too often, women become trapped in limited visions of themselves.
In this respect Low-Fat Love offers a commentary about popular culture and the social construction of femininity. Low-Fat Love suggests women seek new ways to see that are not dependent on male approval so that they will value themselves and reject degrading relationships. Moreover, as the main characters in the book learn, the most toxic relationship a woman may participate in is often with herself.
Ideal Example of Arts-Based Research in courses that cover: arts-based research, arts-based educational research, qualitative research or narrative inquiry. Great Springboard for Class Discussions about: the psychology of negative relationships; popular culture and the construction of gender; gender and identity; gender socialization; dysfunctional family systems; or human intimacy, dating and sexuality.

Low-Fat Love in Class
Leave a Comment. Patricia Leavy, Ph. Frequently called on by the media, she has appeared on national television, radio, is regularly quoted by the news media, publishes op-eds and is a blogger for The Huffington Post and The Creativity Post. She just released a special anniversary edition of her best-selling novel, Low-Fat Love. We had a chance to chat with Patricia about the concept behind Low-Fat Love and what this anniversary edition means to her. Feminist chick-lit, which I know may seem like an oxymoron.
