Appetites: On the Search for True Nourishment

Appetites: On the Search for True Nourishment Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Geneen Roth's bestselling "When Food Is Love" profoundly explored the relationship between eating and intimacy in women's lives. Now in "Appetites", she takes the themes of longing, self-denial, and nourishment and puts them into the broader context of women's experience.

Synopsis:

"Roth tells of her own experiences with a non-blink frankness cushioned by the gracefulness of her prose."—Chicago Tribune. "Just the right mix of confession, sass, and style."—Publishers Weekly.
