Roxane Gay: Hunger

  • Joseph-Beth Booksellers 2692 Madison Road Cincinnati, OH, 45208 United States (map)

"New York Times" bestselling author Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and bodies, using her own emotional and struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. In "Hunger", she casts an insightful and critical eye on her childhood, teens, and twenties – including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life – and brings readers into the present and the realities, pains, and joys of her daily life. With the bracing 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 in a time when the bigger you are, the less you are seen.
