Meaty makes for difficult reading. I winced every time Irby referred to her body as “meat” or a “meat carcass”. But she is unapologetic about it, and rightly so. At one point, after sharing the entire pilot episode for her imaginary TV show, she says: “I want to put a fat bitch on network television.” The TV rights to the book have of course been sold. And anyone who tries to introduce assholes to the Instagram generation should be saluted.
