Geneen Roth's bestselling "When Food Is Love" profoundly explored the relationship between eating and intimacy in women's lives. Now in "Appetites", she takes the themes of longing, self-denial, and nourishment and puts them into the broader context of women's experience.
Roth, a sower of self-esteem seminars and a best-selling author (When Food Is Love, Dutton, 1991), explains why a fit and trim body isn't a sure ticket to happiness.
That some of us overeat in order to feed a spiritual rather than physical hunger isn't a new idea, but perhaps no one has chatted it up with as much panache as Roth (When Food Is Love). In her earnest new book, this popular workshop guru focuses on the ersatz bliss of overeating but also expands her vision to question "the meaning of success, thinness, friendships, and fulfillment." Drawing on much personal anecdote-her hair loss following illness; her ties to her best friend; her worries about another's health, etc.-she charms readers toward realizing that true happiness comes not from a sleek body, wealth or indeed any external attribute but from a sense of inner worth. There's nothing new in that idea either, but Roth presents it, as usual, in just the right mix of confession, sass and style. (Apr.)
