About the Author: From the New York Times, May 25, 2006:
Judith Moore, the author of Fat Girl, a searingly angry and widely praised memoir about being overweight, died on May 15 in Berkeley, Calif. She was 66. The cause was colon cancer, said her daughter Rebecca Moore.
At the heart of Fat Girl is the story of a brutal childhood. Ms. Moore was born in Stillwater, Okla. Her parents divorced when she was young. Her father, a lawyer, was obese, her mother slender. As a child Ms. Moore was shuttled between her mother and her maternal grandmother, both of whom beat her, she said. But her grandmother liked to cook, and so Judith devoured food, desperate to fill the emptiness inside her. And as she grew fat, both women derided her.
Writing in The New York Times Book Review, the author Jane Stern called the book brilliant and angry and unsettling. "
With her mordant humor and tart style, Ms. Moore was sometimes compared to another California writer, Joan Didion.
Ms. Moore published two earlier books. The Left Coast of Paradise: California and the American Heart, a collection of essays published in 1987, included pieces on the political philosopher Herbert Marcuse, on a neurotic elephant and on a philosophically minded pimp. Never Eat Your Heart Out, in 1997, was also a memoir about her life and food, though without the anger of Fat Girl.
Ms. Moore was also a senior editor at the San Diego Reader, a weekly newspaper, where she was known for her almost uncanny intuition about how to bring out the best in writers.
Ms. Moore married and divorced twice. In addition to Rebecca, of Dunedin, Fla., she is survived by a second daughter, Sarah Sullivan of Tacoma, Wash., and a grandson.
