For such a vulnerable, raw memoir, no one but the author could voice the breathtaking revelations, brutal truths, and profound knowledge contained here...Audiences are likely to find Hunger a difficult-yet rewarding-experience, as well.

-- "Library Journal (starred audio review)"

There's no better person to narrate this audio than Roxane Gay herself. Her calm, consistent inflections are juxtaposed with the content of the audiobook, which unfolds her conflicts about her body...Her story is felt because content and narration explore the concept of un/control of the body, self, and existence through her voice.

-- "AudioFile"

Roxane Gay shows us how to be decent to ourselves and decent to one another.

-- "Ann Patchett, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

The book's short, sharp chapters come alive in vivid personal anecdotes.

-- "Entertainment Weekly"

Gay turns to memoir in this powerful reflection on her childhood traumas...Timely and resonant, you can be sure that Hunger will touch a nerve.

-- "Newsday"


-- "Miami Herald"

A work of staggering honesty...Poignantly told.

-- "New Republic"

Wrenching, deeply moving...a memoir that's so brave, so raw, it feels as if [Gay]'s entrusting you with her soul.

-- "Seattle Times"
