"This modern classic relishes in collapsing conventional and cliched orthodoxies. As formative as Harrison's proclamations are, it is Harrison's pacing that gives the book the lingering feeling of the most sensual whisper."
-Kiese Laymon, author of Heavy: An American Memoir

"Belly of the Beast is written with poise and lucidity. It pushes us to think past the pablum of telling fat folx all they gotta do is love themselves to enacting a movement that addresses the source and ramifications of societal anti-fatness as anti-Blackness. Harrison forces us not to look away, reminding us that all too often 'health' and 'desire' are used to annul Blackness. In a 'post bo-po' world, desire and the sheer right to life can be rooted in something other than all the things named non-Black."
-Sabrina Strings, author of Fearing the Black Body: The Racial Origins of Fat Phobia

"Da'Shaun Harrison is an insightful visionary, world-builder, and ingenious writer who brings us into deeper understandings and frameworks of the intersections of anti-Blackness and anti-fatness. Belly of the Beast brings us closer to ourselves because it brings us closer to the truth-that anti-Blackness
is the foundation to how violence shapes our relationships to our bodies and each other. Harrison not only intervenes in the terror of white supremacist paradigms but develops the tools to imagine and build a new world. Belly of the Beast eats, and it leaves no crumbs."
-Hunter Shackelford, author of You Might Die for This

"I am continually blown away by Da'Shaun's ability as a writer to wrestle so deeply and expertly with questions many of us would never even think to ask-whether they be about our world, our politics, our selves, or our bodies. Every page challenges us to expand our imagination and reconstruct the ways we think, talk, and theorize about fatness, Blackness, gender, health, desire, abolition, and more. Belly of the Beast is a gift and a groundbreaker."
-Sherronda J. Brown, editor-in-chief of Wear Your Voice magazine
