Hungry Heart

Adventures in Life, Love, and Writing

Hungry Heart

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author and columnist comes a “fiercely funny, powerfully smart, and remarkably brave” (Cheryl Strayed) collection of heartwarming personal essays “as wonderful as her fiction” (Mindy Kaling) that “will enthusiastically reach out to readers and swiftly draw them close” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Jennifer Weiner is many things: a bestselling author, a Twitter phenomenon, and an “unlikely feminist enforcer” (The New Yorker). She’s also a mom, a daughter, a sister, a former rower and current clumsy yogini, a wife, a friend, and a reality-TV devotee. In her first essay collection, she takes the raw stuff of her life and spins it into a collection of tales of modern-day womanhood as uproariously funny and moving as the best of Nora Ephron and Tina Fey.

No subject is off-limits in these intimate and honest stories: sex, weight, envy, money, her mother’s coming out of the closet, her estranged father’s death. From lonely adolescence to modern childbirth to hearing her six-year-old daughter say the f-word—fat—for the first time, Jen dives deep into the heart of female experience, with the wit and candor that have endeared her to readers all over the world.

In Hungry Heart, “Weiner writes beautifully about growing up and getting on with it, about gaining and losing, about herself and also—ultimately—about all of us” (Curtis Sittenfeld). Hilarious and moving, this powerful collection is about yearning and fulfillment, loss and love, and a woman who searched for her place in the world, and found it as a storyteller.
