Roxane Gay, the New York Times bestselling author of Bad Feminist, celebrates the release of her latest book, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body. In her phenomenally popular essays and long-running Tumblr, Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and body, using her own struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. In Hunger, she explores her past—including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life—and her journey to understand and ultimately save herself.
