Product description

Review

QUOTES FOR 'THE HUNGRY YEARS' 'Part of what makes The Hungry Years so hilariously effective is Leith's recognition that the only honest way to explore the obesity epidemic is to examine his own drives and desires' Time Out 'A vivid memoir ... lucidly describing his own obsessive troughing and bloating' Evening Standard 'This hilarious, self-lacerating memoir of a compulsive eater is a superb book. I feel about The Hungry Years the way William Leith feels about buttered toast: I couldn't get enough and I panicked when I was reaching the end. William Leith has always been one of our best non-fiction writers and this is his crowning achievement' Jon Ronson, author of 'Them: Adventures with Extremists' and 'The Men Who Stare At Goats'

About the Author
