In this powerful and provocative memoir, Kiese Laymon fearlessly explores what the weight of a lifetime of secrets, lies, and deception does to a black body, a black family, and a nation teetering on the brink of moral collapse. From his early experiences to his life as a college professor, Laymon charts his complex relationship with his family, weight, sex, gambling, and writing. Defiant, vulnerable, and insightful, Heavy names secrets Laymon spent a lifetime avoiding - and asks all of us to confront the terrifying possibility that few of us know how to responsibly love.
