Summary
"In Appetites, Caroline Knapp confronts Freud's famous question, 'What do women want?' and boldly reframes it, asking instead: How does a woman know, and then honor, what it is she wants in a culture bent on shaping, defining, and controlling her desires? Knapp, bestselling author of Drinking: A Love Story and Pack of Two: The Intricate Bond Between People and Dogs, has turned her brilliant eye towards how a woman's appetite - for food, love, work, and pleasure - has become a battlefield. She uses her own experiences with anorexia as a powerful exploration of what can happen when we are divorced from our most basic hungers - and offers her own success as testament to the joy of saying 'I want.' Provocative, important, and deeply familiar, Appetites beautifully - and urgently - challenges all women to learn what it is to feed both the body and the soul" --
Summary
The author draws on her own experience with anorexia to consider the challenge of women to know and honor their wants in a culture that would control a woman's expression of desire
