Bernice L. McFadden
“We forget about the people we love sometimes.”
Bernice L. McFadden, Camilla's Roses

Roxane Gay
“I buried the girl I had been because she ran into all kinds of trouble. I tried to erase every memory of her, but she is still there, somewhere. She is still small and scared and ashamed, and perhaps I am writing my way back to her, trying to tell her everything she needs to hear.”
Roxane Gay, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body

Roxane Gay
“This is a memoir of (my) body because, more often than not, stories of bodies like mine are ignored or dismissed or derided. People see bodies like mine and make their assumptions. They think they know the why of my body. They do not.”
Roxane Gay, Hunger

Jill Ciment
“The greatness of the tattoo artist lies in her ability to gauge the degree to which she can push her art before the art kills the canvas.”
Jill Ciment, The Tattoo Artist

Roxane Gay
“It is a powerful lie to equate thinness with self-worth.”
Roxane Gay, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body
