Book Review: Tangela Williams-Spann’s “Sad, Black, and Fat: Musings from the Intersection”

Copyright 2021 Tangela Williams-Spann

“The Floor Isn’t Lava,”

she said. The first thing I noticed while reading Tangela Williams-Spann’s Sad, Black, and Fat: Musings from the Intersection, was how personal everything in it was. From the searing poetry to the harsh life lessons in essay format, there was too much to unpack here; hence I’m positive the author can agree she’s made every potential reader a part of her circle of trust forever.

“People tended to give the new fat person in the gym large amounts of side-eye.”

Life isn’t a straight line, and it’s refreshing to have an opportunity to share with others what you’ve learned going through those twists and turns. I want to thank the author for sending me a review copy of Sad, Black, and Fat: Musings from the Intersection in exchange for my honest review. Readers should look forward to an interesting, bold, and timely call to self-reflection this coming August. You can pre-order it on Amazon here.
