Inhaltsangabe

In our appearance-obsessed society, eating is about much more than hunger and sustenance. Food inspires pleasure and anxiety, shame and obsession. We are constantly judged on how we look, so we've come to judge ourselves (and others) on what and how we eat.

These evocative essays, from some of the most talented and popular writers working today, tackle this universal subject with humor, longing, and compassion. Joyce Maynard writes about learning to make pie with her complex but adored mother. Caroline Leavitt's chilling piece describes the overlap between power and eating. Ophira Edut explains how an outspoken "body outlaw" wound up on Jenny Craig. Diana Abu-Jaber writes about abandoning her Bedouin customs for America's silverware and table manners - and missing the physical, hands-on connection with food.

Exploring the bonds between appetite and remorse, hunger and longing, satisfaction and desire, this anthology is for every woman who's ever felt guilty about eating dessert, or gushed over a friend's weight loss, or wished she had a different body.
