Not only that but this genre may, in terms of book sales, be the one of the largest markets in the history of publishing, so the message that left-wing utopians are inherently dangerous and potentially evil is hitting a lot of impressionable people. The quantity of books consumed here is staggering. The Hunger Games trilogy netted copies , while The Hunger Games movie was the third biggest movie premiere of all time and Catching Fire broke box office records , while the Divergent trilogy held the top first, second and third places in the American bestseller list at the start of 2014 with 10m sales of the first book in the trilogy.
As in Bad Feminist , her voice is authentic and unafraid to be contradictory or controversial. While her prose and structure are intricately constructed, she invites the unresolved messiness of her experience into the material of the book, resisting the temptation for neat conclusions or inspirational lessons – though Hunger is genuinely inspiring in a way only nuance can be. Gay's decades-long silence and internalised shame amplified the damage of what was done to her. By taking control of the narrative of her body in this book, she reverses that silence, contributing a valuable complexity to our cultural conversation.

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.
