Roxane Gay

$55 includes ticket + copy of Hunger

From the bestselling author of Bad Feminist comes a searingly honest memoir of food, weight, self-image, and learning how to feed your hunger while taking care of yourself.

In her phenomenally popular essays and long-running Tumblr blog, Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and body, 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.

With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and power that have made her one of the most admired writers of her generation, her new book Hunger explores the confusing territory of caring for oneself in an era that often is unsafe or unhealthy for women.
