Review

I have reviewed many interesting books for the TLS this year, but the most moving is Roxane Gay's Hunger . . . Her survivor's story is both understated and inspiring. (TLS, Books of the Year)

I'm very thankful for Roxane Gay's Hunger, which should be and should have been on every award list if people were really reading. This is her best book, in my opinion. I love that it takes an unconventional road to storytelling and that the structure often spirals within itself in interesting ways. I also love that it is a story about sexual assault and the ways in which that can change your life. It's a deeply moving, somewhat experimental, gorgeously written and brilliantly thought-out memoir. And it's one of those books that no matter what your relationship to the body, this book is for you, all of you. (Porochista Khakpour, Buzzfeed)

This whip-smart book takes on everything (Guardian Best Biography and Autobiography Books of 2017)

Luminous. . . . intellectually rigorous and deeply moving (The New York Times Book Review)
