Now that I’ve finally finished the first book on my summer reading list, I get to dig back in to Roxane Gay. I’ve been intrigued by her work since reading Difficult Women, and reading Ayiti earlier this year further encouraged me to read more of her work, so here we are at Hunger.
Hunger is a memoir about Gay’s body. As a woman who has been overweight my entire life, I was excited to pick up this book. Now, I don’t know what conversations are to be had in this memoir, and I surely won’t relate to them all because everyone’s experiences are different, but I’m interested in having those conversations. I’m also interested in how this may inspire me to write about my own body (right now, I don’t feel like I have anything to say).
You already know I’ll come back once I’ve finished this read and discuss my thoughts. I know it’s good if I finish quickly, but I don’t want to rush through it.
