ISBN: 9781472153791 Category: Tags: ,


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. In ‘Hunger’, she casts an insightful and critical eye on her childhood, teens and 20s – including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life – and brings readers into the present and the realities, pains and joys of her daily life. With the bracing candour, vulnerability and authority that have made her one of the most admired voices of her generation, Roxane explores what it means to be overweight in a time when the bigger you are, the less you are seen.
