Review

Roxane is a powerhouse of a writer - Lena Dunham

In 88 short, lucid chapters, Gay powerfully takes readers through realities that pain her, vex her, guide her, and inform her work. The result is a generous and empathic consideration of what it's like to be someone else: in itself something of a miracle. - Booklist, starred review

It turns out that when a wrenching past is confronted with wisdom and bravery, the outcome can be compassion and enlightenment - both for the reader who has lived through this kind of unimaginable pain, and for the reader who knows nothing of it. Roxane Gay shows us how to be decent to ourselves, and decent to one another. HUNGER is an amazing achievement in more ways than I can count. - Ann Patchett

A heart-rending debut memoir from the outspoken feminist and essayist . . . An intense, unsparingly honest portrait of childhood crisis and its enduring aftermath. - Kirkus, starred review

One of the most eagerly anticipated books of the year . . . it's "not a weight-loss memoir" - but it's actually something far more inspirational than that . . . the tender beauty of this memoir - testament to her bravery and resilience - has much to teach us about kindness and compassion. - Independent

Hunger is genuinely inspiring in a way only nuance can be

Book Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Bad Feminist: a searingly honest memoir of food, weight, self-image, and learning how to feed your hunger while taking care of yourself.
