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.

Vogue, “10 of the Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2018” * Harper’s Bazaar, “10 New Books to Add to Your Reading List in 2018” * Elle, “21 Books We’re Most Excited to Read in 2018” * Boston Globe, “25 books we can’t wait to read in 2018” * Huffington Post, “60 Books We Can’t Wait to Read in 2018” * Hello Giggles, “19 Books We Can’t Wait to Read in 2018” * Buzzfeed, “33 Most Exciting New Books of 2018”

In this valuable and revealing anthology, cultural critic and bestselling author Roxane Gay collects original and previously published pieces that address what it means to live in a world where women have to measure the harassment, violence, and aggression they face, and where they are “routinely second-guessed, blown off, discredited, denigrated, besmirched, belittled, patronized, mocked, shamed, gaslit, insulted, bullied” for speaking out. Contributions include essays from established and up-and-coming writers, performers, and critics, including actors Ally Sheedy and Gabrielle Union and writers Amy Jo Burns, Lyz Lenz, Claire Schwartz, and Bob Shacochis. Covering a wide range of topics and experiences, from an exploration of the rape epidemic embedded in the refugee crisis to first-person accounts of child molestation, this collection is often deeply personal and is always unflinchingly honest. Like Rebecca Solnit’s Men Explain Things to Me, Not That Bad will resonate with every reader, saying “something in totality that we cannot say alone.”

Searing and heartbreakingly candid, this provocative collection both reflects the world we live in and offers a call to arms insisting that “not that bad” must no longer be good enough.

◎什麼是「穿得像個女人」?

「凡是能讓女性妥善完成工作的服裝,就是讓女性穿著像個女人。」

 

作者認為「穿得像個女人」這句話,充滿著性別區分及刻板印象。為反擊這種說法,他將這句話重下定義,並以豐富的女性工作影像說明,從限制到解放的女性工作服演進歷程。

 

作者認為,二十世紀初期,大量女性加入了勞動市場,卻只有在工廠、農場或任何需要體力勞動的工作場合才能有彈性地穿著褲裝。到了1970年代,即使性革命的影響力極大,社會對女性的服裝仍有限制,但已經較為寬鬆。1980年代與1990年代初期,女性經常穿著褲裝,搭配明顯的寬墊肩外套,這種裝扮被稱為權力套裝……

 

◎女性的穿著,往往是當時社會文化的反映:

‧二戰時期,化妝品專櫃小姐有「畫絲襪」服務,因戰爭期間絲襪材質短缺。

‧日本在1970年舉辦世界博覽會,為女性導覽員設計的制服成為話題,日本企業也興起設計公司制服的風潮。

 

◎女性的工作穿著,顯現出女性自主的力量:

‧1980年代,女性經常穿著褲裝、寬墊肩外套,這讓她們感覺被認真對待,好像可以透過裝扮與男性競爭。

‧2013年,德州參議員溫蒂.戴維斯為了捍衛女性自主墮胎法案,藍色淑女套裝卻配上粉紅美津濃球鞋,進行長達十一小時的冗長發言,十萬人在線上觀看支持。

 

◎第一位踏入那個領域的職場女性,她們穿了什麼?又為世界帶來什麼?

‧一戰時,英國首位女刺青師,除了幫助婦女們刺下戰死丈夫的姓名,也刺上蝴蝶、花朵等女性化的刺青圖騰,讓刺青圖騰不再是男性的專利。

‧首位進入戰地的女性記者、英國御用大律師、第一位當選美國國會議員的非裔女性……

 

從珍古德、希拉蕊到草間彌生、馬拉拉;

從二戰前的農場婦女、女性技工到生技科學家、時尚雜誌編輯……

女性職業的演變和工作中的穿著,都是社會/經濟實況的真實反映,

本書呈現出當代社會女性角色的改變,以及不同社會的歷史和文化發展。

Uma vez, numa terra distante, fui raptada... Mantiveram-me em cativeiro durante treze dias.Queriam vergar-me. Não era pessoal.Não fui vergada. É o que digo a mim mesma.Mireille Duval Jameson é a caprichosa filha de um dos homens mais ricos do Haiti. Vive comodamente nos Estados Unidos com o marido e o filho. É privilegiada, amada, altiva. Um estado de graça que terá um fim abrupto. De férias no Haiti, é raptada por um grupo cujo líder abomina tudo o que a família Duval representa. Num país onde a miséria grassa e os raptos são frequentes, Mireille espera, imperturbável, que o pai pague o resgate. Mas o pai dela tem convicções fortes, que não incluem ceder à chantagem de criminosos oriundos de um mundo que despreza. Na luta de poder que se segue, o corpo de Mireille servirá de escudo e de moeda de troca. Ela terá de se refugiar em si mesma e na esperança de um desenlace rápido. Mas à medida que os dias passam, torna-se cada vez mais claro que o resgate não será pago... “Um livro magistral, intenso, inquietante e único. Jamais o esquecerei.”Meg Wolitzer, autora de Os InteressantesRoxane Gay é escritora, professora, editora, blogger e comentadora. Leciona Inglês na Purdue University, é fundadora da Tiny Hardcore Press, e co-editora da PANK, um coletivo das artes literárias sem fins lucrativos.

Da sua obra destacam-se o livro de contos Ayiti e o ensaio Bad Feminist. Um Estado Selvagem é o seu primeiro romance. Roxane Gay vive atualmente em Charleston, no Illinois.
