Comfort Food for Breakups: The Memoir of a Hungry Girl

by

Comfort Food for Breakups: The Memoir of a Hungry Girl Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An elegiac memoir about food, family, and the thorns of personal history written by a Ukrainian Canadian lesbian, whose family recipes connect intimate vignettes in which food nourishes, comforts, and heals the wounds of the past, including those of a father haunted by memories of time spent in a concentration camp during World War II. The author, both at home and in her travels through North America and Europe, also reconciles her family life with her queer identity; food becomes her salvation and a way to engage with the world. Thoughtful, sensual, and passionate, Comfort Food for Breakups muses on the ways in which food intersects with a nexus of hungers: for intimacy, for family, for home.

Marusya Bociurkiw is a filmmaker and the author of three previous books.

Synopsis:

A moving and sensual food memoir combining family, lesbian identity, and desire.
