"I hate myself because I am not beautiful." -- Judith Moore
Judith Moore (1940 — May 15, 2006) was an American author and essayist best known for her 2005 book A True Story, published by Hudson Street Press.

Moore was born in Oklahoma in 1940 and claimed to have become an obese child, weighing 112 pounds by second grade ([1]); Fat Girl is a memoir of her childhood.

She moved to Florida as a teenager and graduated from Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. She married and divorced twice, having two daughters.

For much of her adult life she lived in Berkeley, California. While living there in the early 1980s she began to submit freelance book reviews and essays to weekly newspapers in the area, most frequently to the East Bay Express. She collected these pieces and published them in 1987 (under the SoHo Press imprint) as The Left Coast of Paradise: California and the American Heart. The book included interviews with Herbert Marcuse and novelist Leonard Michaels. Moore published a second book, Never Eat Your Heart Out in 1998 (North Point Press, an imprint of Farrar Straus and Giroux). This book was about the relationship between food and her life.

From the mid 1980s onward she wrote mostly for San Diego Reader, a weekly publication where she sometimes served not uncontroversially as editor. She specialized in book reviews (especially food writing) and offbeat, whimsical feature subjects. Once she visited a San Diego sausage factory and described it in lurid detail, in order to test the cliché that no one wanted to see sausage being made.

Moore died of colon cancer after three years of treatment in May 2006.
