"Gay has written ... about food and bodies, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. As a woman who describes her own body as 'wildly undisciplined,' Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care"--Amazon.com.

Hungry for an Amazing Memoir? submitted by sdunav on June 16, 2018, 1:15pm Amazing memoir about hunger for love, acceptance, food, and safety, by a talented writer who grew up in a comfortably well-off family. Her parents - Haitian immigrants - unfortunately had no idea of the violent rape she endured at age 12, and the impact this had on her, body and soul. Gay examines her life and the choices she made, very deliberately and clearly, in short chapters that are sometimes hard to read, but always enlightening and thought-provoking.

Nice chance to see what it's like to walk in someone's shoes submitted by adj737 on July 7, 2018, 11:03pm Great book to help build empathy, judging on looks doesn't provide a clear picture into another's journey

Great Memoir submitted by elijahhaswell on August 6, 2018, 5:07pm really great memoir of a life - highly recommend

Highly Recommended submitted by majean on August 9, 2018, 6:48pm I very much enjoyed this book. I think women and men alike would get things out of it.
