More: A Memoir of Hungers (Paperback)
In this revealing memoir the author, a psychotherapist specializing in eating disorders, adds to the knowledge about hunger by tracing her own struggles and in the course of this journey she redefines for herself and the reader the meaning of wanting more.
She writes about a life of longing and emptiness, enlightenment and fulfillment. Her voice is remarkable for its clear notes and for its "attitude."
The author is unflinchingly honest as she describes her fear of the"chubbette" section in the department store as a girl, her flamboyant appetite, her search for sexual companionship, her feminist bat mitzvah, her search for love and at last her determination to be heard on the page.
Chapters stitched together by "the hunger reports" chronicle an astonishing life, astonishingly written.
