    Content: A collection of essays spanning politics, criticism, and feminism from one of the most-watched young cultural observers of her generation, Roxane Gay. "Pink is my favorite color. I used to say my favorite color was black to be cool, but it is pink, all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I'm not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue." In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of color (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture. Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny, and spot-on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better

    Content: " 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.

" Rezension(3): "〈a href=http://www.audiofilemagazine.com target=_blank〉〈img src=https://images.contentreserve.com/audiofile_logo.jpg alt=AudioFile Magazine border=0 /〉〈/a〉:There's no better person to narrate this audio than Roxane Gay herself. Her calm, consistent inflections are juxtaposed with the content of the audiobook, which unfolds her conflicts about her body, both from external and internal perspectives. Her narration is filled with careful intentions--as if every single word stated and not stated explains her existence spatially. She analyzes terms like obese and being a victim versus a survivor of rape. She is repetitive in her sharing. And it's painful to listen to but necessary. She creates safe spaces the best way she knows how--unhealthy or not. Most of all, her story is felt because content and narration explore the concept of un/control of the body, self, and existence through her voice. T.E.C. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine" Rezension(4): "〈a href=http://lj.libraryjournal.com/ target=blank〉〈img src=https://images.contentreserve.com/libraryjournal_logo.png alt=Library Journal border=0 /〉〈/a〉: September 1, 2017 For such a vulnerable, raw memoir, no one but the author could voice the breathtaking revelations, brutal truths, and profound knowledge contained here. Every body has a story and a history, Gay (Bad Feminist, Difficult Women) begins. Gay stands 6'3,at her heaviest, she weighed 577 pounds. The daughter of Haitian immigrants who was raised upper-middle-class, Gay was smart, privileged, loved, and thin, like the rest of her family. Until she wasn't: What you need to know is that my life is split in two...there is the before and after. Before I gained weight. After I gained weight. Before I was raped. After I was raped. Weight protected her, until her corpulence became a cage from which Gay attempts to write herself free: This is a book about learning...to allow myself to be seen and understood. VERDICT Gay calls this work the most difficult writing experience of [her] life,audiences are likely to find Hunger a difficult--yet rewarding--experience, as well.

" Rezension(5): "〈a href=http://www.publishersweekly.com target=blank〉〈img src=https://images.contentreserve.com/pw_logo.png alt=Publisher's Weekly border=0 /〉〈/a〉: May 13, 2013 When Austin (Peregrino) was inducted into the College of Fellows at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, Calif., he described himself as a survivor “from a strange and mythic land called Hollywood.” Austin organizes his life into three parts. In act one, Austin name-drops along his Hollywood road—with an analysis of Judaism in show biz, partially instigated by his Jewish wife. His movie and television days brought him into contact with stars, including Charlie Chaplin, whom he particularly admired. Austin was later blacklisted, having been a member of the Young Communist League during his college days. Despite his later success, Austin wanted something even beyond his career and marriage. Act two tells of his religious conversion and service as a Roman Catholic lay minister, working as a prison chaplain, “touching glass” to say hello to convicts. Act three expresses wisdom: widowed and nearly blind, Austin thinks on the convergence of Judaism and Christianity—not assimilation, not synthesis, not conversion, “but an integrated understanding of the past.” His seasoned thoughts about convergence matter the most. " Rezension(6): "〈a href=http://www.kirkusreviews.com target=blank〉〈img src=https://images.contentreserve.com/kirkus_logo.png alt=Kirkus border=0 /〉〈/a〉: Starred review from May 15, 2017 A heart-rending debut memoir from the outspoken feminist and essayist.Gay (Bad Feminist, 2014, etc.) pulls no punches in declaring that her story is devoid of any powerful insight into what it takes to overcome an unruly body and unruly appetites. Rather than a success story, it depicts the author, at 42, still in the throes of a lifelong struggle with the fallout from a harrowing violation in her youth. The author exposes the personal demons haunting her life--namely weight and trauma--which she deems the ugliest, weakest, barest parts of me. Much of her inner turmoil sprang from a devastating gang rape at age 12. I ate and ate and ate in the hopes that if I made myself big, my body would be safe, she writes. Gay painfully recalls the lost years of her reckless 20s as a time when food, the anonymity of the internet, and creative writing became escapes and balms for loneliness. The author refers to her body as a cage in which she has become trapped, but her obesity also presents itself as a personal challenge to overcome the paralyzing psychological damage caused by rape. Broken into clipped, emotionally resonant chapters, Gay details a personal life spent grappling with the comfort of food, body hyperconsciousness, shame, and self-loathing. Throughout, the author is rightfully opinionated, sharply criticizing the media's stereotypical portrayal of obesity and Oprah Winfrey's contradictory dieting messages. She is just as engaging when discussing her bisexuality and her adoration for Ina Garten, who taught her that a woman can be plump and pleasant and absolutely in love with food. Gay clearly understands the dynamics of dieting and exercise and the frustrations of eating disorders, but she also is keenly in touch with the fact that there are many who feel she is fine just as she is. The author continues her healing return from brokenness and offers hope for others struggling with weight, sexual trauma, or bodily shame. An intense, unsparingly honest portrait of childhood crisis and its enduring aftermath. COPYRIGHT(2017) Kirkus Reviews, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. "

    Content: " A definitive selection of prose and poetry from the self-described black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet, for a new generation of readers.Audre Lorde is an unforgettable voice in twentieth-century literature, one of the first to center the experiences of black, queer women. Her incisive essays and passionate poetry alive with sensuality, vulnerability, and rage remain indelible contributions to intersectional feminism, queer theory, and critical race studies. This essential reader showcases twelve landmark essays and more than sixty poems, selected and introduced by one of our most powerful contemporary voices on race and gender, Roxane Gay. The essays include The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House, I Am Your Sister, and excerpts from the National Book Award– winning A Burst of Light. The poems are drawn from Lorde's nine volumes, including National Book Award nominee The Land Where Other People Live. As Gay writes in her astute introduction, The Selected Works of Audre Lorde celebrates an exemplar of public intellectualism who is as relevant in this century as she was in the last. "
    Content: Biographisches: " Audre Lorde (1934-1992) published nine volumes of poetry and five works of prose. Her constellation of honors includes honorary doctorates from Hunter, Oberlin, and Haverford Colleges."

In the fiery 1979 polemic “The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House,” Lorde, as one of the few African-Americans at the Second Sex Conference commemorating Simone de Beauvoir’s classic text, criticizes the majority-white organizers for their disinterest in more diverse voices: “What does it mean when the tools of a racist patriarchy are used to examine the fruits of that same patriarchy? It means that only the most narrow perimeters of change are possible and allowable.” The prose portion also features selections from Lorde’s intense and deeply affecting journals written over the years she battled cancer. The sublime choices of Lorde’s poetry include the haunting “Martha,” written during a former lover’s recuperation after a car accident, and “Father Son and Holy Ghost,” which beautifully records a childhood memory of her father returning from work, “Misty from the worlds business/ Massive and silent as the whole day’s wish.” Readers new to Lorde’s work couldn’t ask for a better introduction, and those already familiar will find this an ideal collection of her greatest hits. " Rezension(5): "〈a href=http://www.kirkusreviews.com target=blank〉〈img src=https://images.contentreserve.com/kirkus_logo.png alt=Kirkus border=0 /〉〈/a〉: Starred review from June 15, 2020 A collection of Lorde's groundbreaking prose and poems on race, injustice, intersectional feminism, and queer identity. A trailblazing black lesbian writer and activist, Lorde (1934-1992) produced a prolific and profound body of work. In this compilation, Gay presents a selection of representative texts from among Lorde's prose and poetry. The compilation features a dozen essays, including a series of journal entries about living with cancer,selections from Lorde's American Book Award-winning collection, A Burst of Light (1988),and more than 60 poems taken from multiple volumes, including National Book Award nominee The Land Where Other People Live (1973). For Gay, Lorde was the first to demonstrate that a writer could be intensely concerned with the inner and outer lives of black queer women, that our experiences could be the center instead of relegated to the periphery. She wrote beyond the white gaze and imagined a black reality that did not subvert itself to the cultural norms dictated by whiteness. In the oft-quoted The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House, Lorde denounces white women for being in bed with the racist patriarchy, excluding black women's leadership and ideas from supposedly feminist spaces. In Uses of the Erotic, Lorde calls for a more expansive view and embrace of the erotic as a resource within each of us that lies in a deeply female and spiritual plane. She also revisits the turbulent onset of her adolescence and complex relationship with her mother. Lorde's poems, urgent and intimate, focus on the ordinary and the extraordinary, a range of subjects including love, death and dying, and police killings of black people with impunity. That the author's masterful work is as relevant and necessary today as it was in the last century is both a tribute to her and a condemnation of a society that continues to oppress and marginalize black women. An essential anthology that challenges our 21st-century social and political consciousness. COPYRIGHT(2020) Kirkus Reviews, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. "

    Content: "In the revised edition of this classic collection, 31 writers share their own stories of loving and leaving New York, capturing the mesmerizing allure the city has always had for writers, poets, and wandering spirits. Their essays often begin as love stories do, with the passion of something newly discovered-the crush of subway crowds, the streets filled with manic energy, and the sudden, unblinking certainty that this is the only place on Earth where one can become exactly who she is meant to be. They also share the grief that comes like a gut-punch, when the grand metropolis loses its magic and the pressures of New York's frenetic life wear thin for even the most dedicated dwellers. As friends move away, rents soar, and love -- still -- remains just out of reach, each writer's goodbye is singular and universal, just like New York itself"--
