Reviews

In 88 short, lucid chapters, Gay powerfully takes readers through realities that pain her, vex her, guide her, and inform her work. The result is a generous and empathic consideration of what it's like to be someone else: in itself something of a miracle. - Booklist, starred reviewIt turns out that when a wrenching past is confronted with wisdom and bravery, the outcome can be compassion and enlightenment - both for the reader who has lived through this kind of unimaginable pain, and for the reader who knows nothing of it. Roxane Gay shows us how to be decent to ourselves, and decent to one another. HUNGER is an amazing achievement in more ways than I can count. - Ann PatchettA heart-rending debut memoir from the outspoken feminist and essayist . . . An intense, unsparingly honest portrait of childhood crisis and its enduring aftermath. - Kirkus, starred reviewOne of the most eagerly anticipated books of the year . . . it's "not a weight-loss memoir" - but it's actually something far more inspirational than that . . . the tender beauty of this memoir - testament to her bravery and resilience - has much to teach us about kindness and compassion. - Independent
