Fatizen 24602
By Philip Barragan

Series Description:

This is the story of Delilah Palladino, a dynamic, plus-sized woman and her fight against the formidable Office of Size Compliance in the year 2075. The O.S.C. has just passed the Endomorphic Laws, anti-fat legislation that diminishes the rights of the obese. 

Delilah never apologizes for the space her body requires, but with the advent of a supposed national food shortage, sustenance allotments are monitored and groceries are distributed based on assigned family nutrition profiles. But when she confronts Mimi Masters, the O.S.C.'s national director, Delilah's citizenship is revoked. She’s reclassified a fatizen, denied her rights as a citizen, and sentenced to Calorie Camp, the federally sanctioned weight loss detention center for the criminally obese.

Can Delilah survive her incarceration? Will she ever be united with her family? And how will she spread the news about the secret of H2Off, the O.S.C.’s vitamin water, when no one has ever escaped the camps?

Fatizen 24602 tells of one woman's journey and how she stands up for her rights and inspires courage, hope and a revolution. Join Delilah on her adventure and experience the tenacious human spirit that perseveres in the face of unrelenting adversity.

Author Bio For Philip Barragan:

Philip C. Barragan, II is an author and activist born and raised in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley. He has been published in The Blade Magazine, The Big Ad, and Two Hawks Quarterly, an online literary journal.

Following a career of delivering social services to individuals living with HIV/AIDS on the front line, Philip now spends his days as a healthcare analyst working to improve the healthcare delivery system for disenfranchised residents of Los Angeles. 

Philip's life was changed forever when he returned to school in 2006 at the age of 39 to complete his bachelor's degree and earned his B.A. and M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Antioch University L.A. 

Choosing life as a fat man, Philip has been an advocate for people of size for as long as he can remember. He believes that everyone should be comfortable in their own skin, whatever size that is. But most importantly, Philip believes in the elimination of fat shame. It does nothing but hold you back from living the life you want. In accepting ourselves and our beautiful bodies, whatever the shape or size, we can learn to accept the differences in others and embrace diversity as a wondrous thing. And in the end, we move one step closer to true happiness and total fulfillment by living an authentic life. 

When not challenging the status quo, Philip works with his husband, Mason Arrigo, on the upcoming graphic novel Fatizen 24602Messages from Delilah are available on her blog at www.delilahsdiaries.com.
