Roxane Gay addresses the experience of living in a body that she calls 'wildly undisciplined.' She casts an insightful and critical eye over her childhood, teens, and twenties -- including the devastating act of violence that was a turning point at age 12 -- and brings readers into the present and the realities, pains, and joys of her daily life. With candor, vulnerability, and authority, Roxane explores what it means to be overweight in a time when the bigger you are, the less you are seen.… (més)

Roxane Gay is brilliant, readable and important in the struggles for women and blacks and I whipped through her book, yet I grew weary and dejected just as she did telling her tragic story. Her writing does spur one on even if there is a swathe of hopelessness about her recovering from the gang rape suffered at twelve. Yet I kept reading, fascinated by the depth of her confessions and laying bare of her pain and loneliness, and her self-understanding. It's what we're encouraged to do in memoir but how difficult it is.

"I do not want pity or appreciation or advice. I am not brave or heroic. I am not strong. I am not special. I am one woman who has experienced something countless women have experienced. I am a victim who survived." ( )

Had been wanting to read this book for a long time, and although I've heard Roxane talk about it in interviews and podcasts, and am used to her writing through her substak newstetter, newspaper columns and essays, but her writing in this book is achingly vulnerable. ( )

Poignant, painful, perfect. ( )

I listened to this very well read/produced audiobook.

Gay's story is a nearly unbearable tale of being gang-raped as a child and what happened to her in the aftermath, mainly her becoming super morbidly obese. It is relentless in its close examination of the choices she has made, the things she had no control over, longing and loathing.

Gay is a brilliant writer, and this book is an important addition to the literature of "the body." ( )

I have been reading Roxane Gay since she started writing her work advice column for the New York Times; I have been wanting to read her books for about that long but Hunger is the first I have read. It is a devastating account of her life and the pain she has endured. It is also extraordinarily well written and discrete while being brutally honest. ( )

This is the reality of living in my body: I am trapped in a cage. The frustrating thing about cages is that you're trapped but you can see exactly what you want. You can reach out from the cage, but only so far.
My body is a cage. My body is a cage of my own making. I am still trying to figure out my way out of it. I have been trying to figure a way out of it for more than twenty years.
When I was twelve years old, I was raped.
So many years past being raped, I tell myself what happened is "in the past." This is only partly true. In too many ways, the past is still with me. The past is written on my body. I carry it every single day. The past sometimes feels like it might kill me. It is a very heavy burden.
Hating myself became as natural as breathing.
I ate and ate and ate at school. At home for breaks, I made a show of dieting (and continued eating everything I really wanted to eat, in secret). This double life of eating would become something that stayed with me well into adulthood. It lingers even now.
