Do you look in the mirror and like the person looking back at you? Scrutinising our bodies has become an instinct. Whether it’s tracking our weight, scars or shape, we are always seeking a new way to beat our bodies into submission. And although people are challenging this, we’re getting to the stage where just saying the words “every body is beautiful” really doesn’t cut it anymore. In this extraordinary collection of real-world experiences, twenty writers from all walks of life look further than the end goal of self-love to explore the aching steps taken to get there. Through poetry, essays and creative non-fiction, these writers open themselves up for public scrutiny to show readers what it’s like to live life under your own microscope.
