內容簡介



《不良女性主義的告白》作者羅珊.蓋伊(Roxane Gay)誠摯而大膽的最新力作,甫上市即榮登《紐約時報》暢銷書排行,成為亞馬遜6月選書。

這不是一本關於減肥的書!

這是一本關於食物、體重、自我形象以及如何在照顧自己身體健康的同時也能滿足渴望的誠實之書。

「這本毫無修飾而優雅的回憶錄,深度挖掘了”我的身體我自在”的意義,蓋伊否認這是一本關於”勝利”的故事,但讀者將很難找到一個更好的字眼。」-《出版人周刊》星級評論

「從第一頁開始到最後一頁,展現了勇敢、堅韌與赤裸的誠實…令人難忘…重要的一本書。」-《圖書館期刊》星級評論

「我一直吃一直吃,只希望把我自己餵大,這樣我的身體就安全了。我埋葬了昔日少女的我,因為她碰上了各種不同的麻煩,我試著抹除她所有的回憶,但至今她一直在那裡,在某處…。過去,我困在自己的身體裡,一個我幾乎不認識也不了解的身體裡,但至少我是安全的。」- 羅珊.蓋伊

羅珊.蓋伊毫無保留且敏感地書寫了食物與身體,她在情感與心理上的掙扎,探索了我們對於享樂、飲食、外貌與健康的共同焦慮。蓋伊描述自己的身體是”毫無紀律”的,但是她了解在渴望與拒絕渴望之間、在撫慰心靈與照顧生理健康之間的那種張力。少女時代所遭遇的性侵,使她以吃胖自己作為自我保護的措施。在這本書中,她以批判之眼觀照自己的童年、青少女以及二十來歲的年紀,並且將她目前每日的痛苦與喜樂呈現在讀者面前,與我們一起探索身體過重的意義。

I ate and ate and ate in the hopes that if I made myself big, my body would be safe. I buried the girl I was because she ran into all kinds of trouble. I tried to erase every memory of her, but she is still there, somewhere. . . . I was trapped in my body, one that I barely recognized or understood, but at least I was safe.'

New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and bodies, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. 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 twenties-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 candor, 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. Hunger is a deeply personal memoir from one of our finest writers, and tells a story that hasn't yet been told but needs to be.
