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.

    Very intimate narrative of an immensely damaging event and the way the author lived through it. Would recommend this book to anyone. It’s also pretty short

    Este libro es too much. Es muy fuerte y es difícil y doloroso, pero es también necesario. Estoy segura de que todos tenemos algo que aprender de él.

    💧Sentiš

    Un libro profundo, a veces trite, a veces enojado de cómo vivir en este mundo con un cuerpo que no se adapta a la norma. Me hizo sentir comprendida y escuchada y para qué otra cosa es un libro sino para hacerte sentir que no estás sola.

    This is a book about learning, however slowly, to allow myself to be seen and understood

    I was marked after that. Men could smell it on me, that I had lost my body, that they could avail themselves of my body, that I wouldn’t say no because I knew my no did not matter. They smelled it on me and took advantage, every chance they got.

    I had a ferocious imagination. I was a daydreamer and I resented being pulled out of my daydreams to deal with the business of living.
