Fatty Fatty Boom Boom: A Memoir of Food, Fat, and Family is Rabia Chaudry’s love letter (with recipes) to fresh roti, chaat, chicken biryani, ghee, and pakoras – and an often hilarious dissection of life in a Muslim immigrant family. It is also a searingly honest portrait of a woman grappling with a body that works, but refuses to meet the expectations of others. In Illegally Yours: A Memoir, TV writer Rafael Agustin (Jane the Virgin) recalls how, while still a teenager, he accidentally discovered he was undocumented – and how this revelation turned everything he thought he knew about himself and his family upside down.
