Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body

From the *New York Times* bestselling author of *Bad Feminist*: a searingly honest memoir of food, weight, self-image, and learning how to feed your hunger while taking care of yourself.
*“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.”*
In her phenomenally popular essays and long-running Tumblr blog, Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and body, 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 explores her past—including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life—and brings readers along on her journey to understand and ultimately save herself.
With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and power that have made her one of the most admired writers of her generation, Roxane explores what it means to learn to take care of yourself: how to feed your hungers for delicious and satisfying food, a smaller and safer body, and a body that can love and be loved—in a time when the bigger you are, the smaller your world becomes.
### Recensione
I have reviewed many interesting books for the *TLS* this year, but the most moving is Roxane Gay’s *Hunger . . . * Her survivor’s story is both understated and inspiring. (*TLS, Books of the Year*)
I’m very thankful for Roxane Gay’s *Hunger*, which should be and should have been on **every award list** if people were really reading. This is **her best book**, in my opinion. I love that it takes an unconventional road to storytelling and that the structure often spirals within itself in interesting ways. I also love that it is a story about sexual assault and the ways in which that can change your life. It’s a** deeply moving, somewhat experimental, gorgeously written and brilliantly thought-out** memoir. And it’s one of those books that no matter what your relationship to the body, **this book is for you, all of you.** (*Porochista Khakpour, Buzzfeed*)
This **whip-smart **book takes on everything (*Guardian Best Biography and Autobiography Books of 2017*)
In 88 short, lucid chapters, Gay **powerfully** takes readers through realities that pain her, vex her, guide her, and inform her work. The result is **a generous and empathic** consideration of what it’s like to be someone else: in itself **something of a miracle**. (*Booklist, starred review*)
It turns out that when a wrenching past is confronted with **wisdom and bravery**, the outcome can be **compassion and enlightenment **- both for the reader who has lived through this kind of unimaginable pain, and for the reader who knows nothing of it. **Roxane Gay shows us how to be decent to ourselves**, and decent to one another. **HUNGER is an amazing achievement in more ways than I can count.** (*Ann Patchett*)
A** heart-rending **debut memoir from the outspoken feminist and essayist . . . An **intense, unsparingly honest** portrait of childhood crisis and its enduring aftermath. (*Kirkus, starred review*)

Hundred-Dollar Baby

A client from a decades-old case reaches out to Boston PI Spenser-but can he rescue troubled April Kyle once more? Longtime Spenser fans will remember that once upon a time, though not so long ago, there was a girl named April Kyle-a beautiful teenage runaway who turned to prostitution to escape her terrible family life. The book was 1982’s Ceremony, and, thanks to Spenser, April escaped Boston’s Combat Zone for the relative safety of a high-class New York City bordello. April resurfaced in Taming a Sea-Horse, again in dire need of Spenser’s rescue-this time from the clutches of a controlling lover. But April Kyle’s return in Hundred-Dollar Baby is nothing short of shocking. When a mature, beautiful, and composed April strides into Spenser’s office, the Boston PI barely hesitates before recognizing his once and future client. Now a well-established madam herself, April oversees an upscale call-girl operation in Boston’s Back Bay. Still looking for Spenser’s approval, it takes her a moment before she can ask him, again, for his assistance. Her business is a success; what’s more, it’s an all-female enterprise. Now that some men are trying to take it away from her, she needs Spenser. April claims to be in the dark about who it is that’s trying to shake her down, but with a bit of legwork and a bit more muscle, Spenser and Hawk find ties to organized crime and local kingpin Tony Marcus, as well as a scheme to franchise the operation across the country. As Spenser again plays the gallant knight, it becomes clear that April’s not as innocent as she seems. In fact, she may be her own worst enemy.

…and especially when it’s vintage Parker. Boston P.I. Spenser remains a lovable, troublemaking wiseacre…the plot gallops along. There are few things as satisfying as a cozy evening with good friends, especially when [it’s] Boston P.I. Spenser. Spenser and company guarantee a pleasant outing to Boston with just enough thrills and bad guys to spice up the tri. A plot that turns on [Spenser’s] vulnerability and one of his good deeds gone bad.

Human Traces

SUMMARY: Sixteen-year-old Jacques Rebière is living a humble life in rural France, studying butterflies and frogs by candlelight in his bedroom. Across the Channel, in England, the playful Thomas Midwinter, also sixteen, is enjoying a life of ease-and is resigned to follow his father’s wishes and pursue a career in medicine. A fateful seaside meeting four years later sets the two young men on a profound course of friendship and discovery; they will become pioneers in the burgeoning field of psychiatry. But when a female patient at the doctors’ Austrian sanatorium becomes dangerously ill, the two men’s conflicting diagnosis threatens to divide them–and to undermine all their professional achievements. From the bestselling author of Birdsong comes this masterful novel that ventures to answer challenging questions of consciousness and science, and what it means to be human.

The Human Division

The Human Division by John Scalzi
Following the events of *The Last Colony*, John Scalzi tells the story of the fight to maintain the unity of the human race.
The people of Earth now know that the human Colonial Union has kept them ignorant of the dangerous universe around them. For generations the CU had defended humanity against hostile aliens, deliberately keeping Earth an ignorant backwater and a source of military recruits. Now the CU’s secrets are known to all. Other alien races have come on the scene and formed a new alliance—an alliance against the Colonial Union. And they’ve invited the people of Earth to join them. For a shaken and betrayed Earth, the choice isn’t obvious or easy.
Against such possibilities, managing the survival of the Colonial Union won’t be easy, either. It will take diplomatic finesse, political cunning…and a brilliant “B Team,” centered on the resourceful Lieutenant Harry Wilson, that can be deployed to deal with the unpredictable and unexpected things the universe throws at you when you’re struggling to preserve the unity of the human race.
Being published online from January to April 2013 as a three-month digital serial, *The Human Division* will appear as a full-length novel of the Old Man’s War universe, plus—for the first time in print—the first tale of Lieutenant Harry Wilson, and a coda that wasn’t part of the digital serialization.

Hula Done It?

Dead in the WaterFor travel escort Emily Andrew and her fellow Iowans, aloha means hello to all the sun, surf, and scrumptious cuisine their Hawaiian cruise has to offer. But for Professor Dorian Smoker, a renowned expert on the legendary Captain Cook, aloha also means good-bye — as in man overboard. Sure, it could have been an accident. But Emily wonders if some guest with a grudge might have knocked off the opinionated professor. Or maybe it had something to do with that missing journal Nana’s friend lent him — the one with the mysterious treasure map. Emily figures the map is probably a fake. But when another copy turns up, she and her friends take off, rafting down rivers and plunging through jungles to find the treasure themselves. Unfortunately, Professor Smoker’s killer just might have the same idea. And this tropical heat wave could quickly turn into a crime wave…

Move over, Evanovich, there’s a new author in town…One of the best I have read for a long time…Hilarious. The characters are an absolute hoot. — Under the Covers (for Top O’ the Mournin’)

Hue 1968

By January 1968, despite an influx of half a million American troops, the fighting in Vietnam seemed to be at a stalemate.Yet General William Westmoreland, commander of American forces, announced a new phase of the war in which ‘the end begins to come into view.’ The North Vietnamese had different ideas. In mid-1967, the leadership in Hanoi had started planning an offensive intended to win the war in a single stroke. Part military action and part popular uprising, the Tet Offensive included attacks across South Vietnam, but the most dramatic and successful would be the capture of Hue, the country’s cultural capital. At 2:30 a.m. on January 31, 10,000 National Liberation Front troops descended from hidden camps and surged across the city of 140,000. By morning, all of Hue was in Front hands save for two small military outposts. The commanders in country and politicians in Washington refused to believe the size and scope of the Front’s presence. Captain Chuck Meadows was ordered to lead his 160-marine Golf Company against thousands of enemy troops in the first attempt to re-enter Hue later that day. After several futile and deadly days, Lieutenant Colonel Ernie Cheatham would finally come up with a strategy to retake the city, block by block and building by building, in some of the most intense urban combat since World War II. With unprecedented access to war archives in the U.S. and Vietnam and interviews with participants from both sides, Bowden narrates each stage of this crucial battle through multiple points of view. Played out over twenty-four days of terrible fighting and ultimately costing 10,000 combatant and civilian lives, the Battle of Hue was by far the bloodiest of the entire war. When it ended, the American debate was never again about winning, only about how to leave. In Hue 1968, Bowden masterfully reconstructs this pivotal moment in the American war in Vietnam.

Meticulously analytical… excellent… gives us the clearest picture yet of what happened in Vietnam * USA Today * Hue 1968 is a meticulous and vivid retelling of an important battle. * New York Times * An extraordinary feat of journalism… To understand what it is to be human, you must understand war, which is unique to our species. In Hue 1968, we read about humanity placed in a crucible, out of which comes both refined steel and slag. Here the best and worst of human behaviour is exposed in glaring light. — Karl Marlantes * Wall Street Journal * Bowden tells this story with a power and a wealth of detail that no previous history of this offensive has approached – this is another instantly-recognizable classic of military history. * Christian Science Monitor * Hue 1968 is, by far, the most comprehensive (and balanced) coverage on this battle I’ve seen. — Brigadier General Mike Downs, USMC (ret.) Hue 1968 unravels one of the great mysteries of our time… Did the Battle of Hue end up as a victory or defeat? The answer depends on who’s asking and who’s telling. Bowden takes on both roles and does it well. — Lieutenant Colonel Charles A. Krohn (ret.), author of THE LOST BATTALION OF TET This book is a tragic tale of misunderstanding but also one of great heroism and sacrifice by those who fought in the streets of Hue and in the nearby rice paddies and villages. — Brigadier General Howard T. Prince II, USMC (ret.), Commanding Officer, Bravo Company, 5/7 Cavalry, 1968 There is no more complete, accurate and detailed book. It reads like a novel even though is it made up almost exclusively of very personal accounts. — John Wear, president of the USMC Vietnam Tankers Association
