Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body Overview

In her memoir, Roxane Gay details her experience as an overweight woman growing up in the United States. Starting from her childhood, Gay describes the circumstances that led to her unstable relationship with food and she paints an intimate portrait of how obesity is treated in America and the world. Injecting social commentary with intensely personal anecdotes, reflections, and meditations, Gay strives to provide a voice not often heard in mainstream conversation, one characterized not by triumph or celebratory self-image, but by the articulation of an honest and ongoing struggle to exist as a fat American woman.
