Hunger by Roxane Gay
Rate this book
Clear rating
My feelings were very mixed about Bad Feminist, but not here. This was unadulterated perfection. I'm planning to read it again immediately (it's pretty short), in print this time so I can really see the things I want to make note of.

Maybe 3.5 stars. I haven't actually spoken to many people about Hillary Clinton (because I try not to). But when I have, and when I've read articles and books about her, they have almost never—the "almost" might not even be necessary—been entirely re ...more
