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. "I ate and ate and ate in the hopes that if I made myself big, my body would be safe. I buried the girl I was because she ran into all kinds of trouble. I tried to erase every memory of her, but she is still there, somewhere. . . . I was trapped in my body, one that I barely recognized or understood, but at least I was safe." In her phenomenally popular essays and long-running Tumblr blog, Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and body, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. As a woman who describes her own body as "wildly undisciplined," Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care. In Hunger, she explores her past--including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life--and brings readers along on her journey to understand and ultimately save herself. With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and power that have made her one of the most admired writers of her generation, Roxane explores what it means to learn to take care of yourself: how to feed your hungers for delicious and satisfying food, a smaller and safer body, and a body that can love and be loved--in a time when the bigger you are, the smaller your world becomes.… (más)

I listened to the audiobook of Roxane Gay’s memoir which is also like getting sucker punched in the gut over and over and over again. It’s so incredibly honest and raw and caused me to look inwardly at my own insecurities and subtle prejudices I have regarding weight and appearance.

However, I won’t lie: about 70% of the way through, I felt like I had had enough. Gay spends a significant chunk of the book detailing her inner monologue which is ruthlessly self-loathing as a result of a deeply traumatic experience. I get it, it’s her reality. But I couldn’t help feeling relieved when the audiobook was finally over. ( )

Spoiler? Trigger warning? Gangbang rape.

I can't handle this. It's not too graphic, I'm just sensitive.

Fat shaming is one of the last acceptable prejudices in our society. Roxane Gay in a devastatingly painful memoir shames society for our attitudes toward fat people and offers reasons why things aren't always as simple as they seem. It got a bit repetitive because it was culled from essays she has written over the years. Gut-wrenching and a must-read for everyone. ( )

Full of hard truths and raw pain. Chapter 84 is one of my favorites--make the dude sweat for the rest of his miserable life. ( )

There are lots of books about weight loss, but not so many exist where the author hasn’t reached her ideal weight or fully exorcised the demons that led to the weight gain. Enter Roxane Gay. Gay is the author of the bestseller Bad Feminist and she brings her toughest and most personal topic to readers in her most recent memoir, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body. This journey allows the reader insight into how an intelligent, articulate, opinionated, and loved woman could eat herself intentionally into morbid obesity, where she still current resides though with more self-love and acceptance.
