Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body – Roxane Gay

Novelist and New York Times opinion author Roxane Gay published Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body in 2017. The book focused on Gay’s relationship with her body and her struggles to build a positive relationship with food after a childhood full of sexual violence and trauma.

Gay called it “by far the hardest book I’ve ever had to write.” Readers and critics alike found the book deeply vulnerable and incredibly intimate to read. Her unswerving commitment to dealing with complex subject matter without diving into sentimentality makes this one of the most important books a young person with body image issues can read today.
