Hunger by Roxane Gay

Roxane Gay’s Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body is brutal and honest–brutal because of the pain she’s experienced, and honest because of how much she’s chosen to reveal. Food is sometimes used to cope in a world that can often be cruel, but like any addictive behaviour the consequences of eating too much leads to another sort of pain. Roxane Gay writes eloquently about her experience of having an “unruly body” in a world that punishes those that don’t fit the ideal.
