HUNGER A Memoir of (My) Body

by | Read by Roxane Gay

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

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, both from external and internal perspectives. Her narration is filled with careful intentions--as if every single word stated and not stated explains her existence spatially. She analyzes terms like "obese" and being a "victim" versus a "survivor" of rape. She is repetitive in her sharing. And it's painful to listen to but necessary. She creates safe spaces the best way she knows how--unhealthy or not. Most of all, her story is felt because content and narration explore the concept of un/control of the body, self, and existence through her voice.
