Posted by admin on June 22, by Uzoamaka Anyiwo, History Professor, Curry College Low-Fat Love by Patricia Leavy is so much more than its feminine packaging to become the perfect representation of contemporary literature at its most valuable transcending genre and amazingly though intentionally drawing in a typically disengaged mixed college audience. As a history professor who regularly uses literature to evoke the past yet struggles to get her students to read anything at all, I was excited at the potential to use a novel that suggests it was written specifically for a college audience.

Indeed, I admit, that if I had seen this novel on Amazon I would have rolled my eyes and kept on surfing to the vampire literature section. Indeed many of my male students expressed similar disparaging dismissive statements on first seeing the text listed on their syllabi. But like me, once they started reading, they were hooked. Ostensibly about the broken love lives of Prilly and Janice, two thoroughly modern women, this is really the story of us all.

LFL is a clever, witty, heartwarming, frustrating look at contemporary culture at the turn of the century that perfectly opens the eyes of emerging adults to the impact of popular culture on their worldviews.

With little scaffolding, the tale weaves in so many recognizable elements that blind us to the destructive nature of capitalism and consumerism on our choices without ever becoming preachy or sounding like a Sociology essay. From Prilly fantasizing about the lives of Brad and Angelina to Prilly and Pete walking into a club playing Portishead, even I as a black British History professor felt included in the narrative.

Her beliefs about beauty are so perfectly formed and so easily transferable to the minds of an audience completely unused to reflection that it took almost no scaffolding to get the students to see what I saw. Every single student, even those who never read anything, read the entire novel, some more than once. Their desire to talk about it spilled into every class until our scheduled week of discussion, again something that never happens. The novel triggered all sorts of reflections on their worlds and their expectations from life.

While they knew exactly what that big life would look like, they had no conception of how to get there and LFL helped them reflect on why that was the case. A novel that manages to synthesize years of research without it ever feeling researched, and one that taught so much without it ever feeling like they were being educated. In short, read it; now. A wonderful and inspiring read that I will be using for years to come. This entry was posted in Uncategorized.
