I ate and ate and ate and ate in the hope that if I grew up, my body would be safe.I buried the girl I was, because she ran into all sorts of trouble.I tried to erase all the sound memory, but it’s still there somewhere.I’ve been trapped in my body, which I barely recognize or understand, but at least I was sure.”New York Times best-seller writer author Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and bodies, using his own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of discovering our shared anxieties more pleasure, consumption, appearance and health.As a woman who describes her own body as “savagely ” undisciplined”,” Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care.In Hunger, she casts a insight and critical eye on her childhood, teens and youth-including the devastating acts of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life, and brings readers into the present and reality, the pain and joy of her daily life.With the barrage of candor, vulnerability and authority that have made her one of the most admired voices of her generation, Roxane explores what it means to be overweight at a time when the greater you are, the less you are seen.Hunger is a very personal memory of one of our best writers, and tells a story that has not yet been told, but must be.
