Hunger: a memoir of (my) body / Roxane Gay, 307 pgs. read by Roxane Gay

Gay has written a painful memoir of being morbidly obese that details what it is like to live in a world where fat people are shamed every day.  She tells of the traumatic event that damaged her and made her want to be large to protect herself from similar attacks.  She tells of the emotional damage and the desire to disappear that has lasted 30 years.  This is a painful book to read/listen to. There are many parts that you can relate with and some you hope you will never be able to relate to.  Gay is still amazing and I can't imagine how difficult it was to write this book.
