Jewish up and coming food writer Hannah Howard’s compulsively readable debut memoir is the story of a woman at war – with herself, with her body, and with food – while working her way through the underbelly of New York City’s glamorous culinary scene. Hannah is hiding an eating disorder. The excruciatingly late nights, demanding chefs, bad boyfriends, and destructive obsessions have left a void inside her that she can’t fill. To reconcile her relationships with the food she worships and a body she struggles to accept, Hannah’s going to have to learn to nourish her soul. Brutally honest, carefully observed, and just right for our current cultural moment, FEAST examines gendered power dynamics in the workplace, our obsession with rarified food, and the hard work of recovery and self-sustenance. Don’t miss FEAST.
