FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES
Readers know Jennifer Weiner as many things: a mother, a daughter, a bestselling author, a Twitter phenomenon, and an "unlikely feminist enforcer" (The New Yorker). She grew up as an outsider in her picturesque Connecticut hometown ("a weight-loss ad 'before' outtake in an Abercrombie & Fitch photoshoot") and at her Ivy League college, spent her twenties working in newsrooms, and went on to become a novelist, an activist, and a New York Times columnist.
Now in her first work of nonfiction, no subject is off-limits as Jen tells the stories of her life. From a lonely adolescence to love, marriage, and modern childbirth to hearing her six-year-old daughter's use of the f-word—fat—for the first time, from her mother's late-in-life lesbianism to her estranged father's death, HUNGRY HEART is a stunningly honest, funny, heartbreaking, and ultimately redemptive memoir about hunger and humor, loving and losing, and a woman who searched for her place in the world—and found it as a storyteller.
