Tonight's Some Favorite Writers salon presents Roxane Gay, the cultural critic riding high on her current autobiography, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body ($26, Harper). You can look at that memoir in terms of a concrete moment — because, as she explains in her gripping, nakedly honest tales, the form she finds herself in at the moment is not her final form. Through body issue agonies to healing, weakness and strength, Gay transfers the very best of herself to the reader through her writing — changing the people reading about her plight and triumph as much as she has changed herself.
