How We Are Hungry is a collection of Dave Eggers's short stories that twist and inspire the imagination Dave Eggers has championed the cause of the short story so magnificently that through his own McSweeney's magazine and through its many imitators the form is once again in the ascendant. Yet while celebrating the work of others, Eggers has also proved himself time and again one of the modern masters of the form. This unmissable collection is Egger's first, and showcases his talents in a variety of stories that are short-short, short-long and every length in between; and in stories that are dark, funny, inspiring, daring and endlessly inventive (including the acclaimed 'Up the Mountain Coming Down Slowly'). In short, in stories that will make you appreciate that Dave Eggers and the short story were made for each other - and, in turn, for you. 'Possibly the most admired and emulated American author of his generation' Independent 'Brilliant, confident floods of language' Sunday Herald 'Intensely pleasurable, striking in its beauty...a triumph of both form and content' Guardian

Women have many secrets. But a woman's secret relationship with food and her body can overshadow other aspects of her life, filling her with obsession, shame and fear. Many women waste countless years focusing on food and appearance, rather than spending energy on what holds deepest meaning for them in life. In What Are You Hungry For? authors Taylor and Ginsburg show how obsessive dieting, a distorted body image and eating disorders are often symptoms of a deep spiritual void. They offer a revolutionary--and easy to follow--approach to resolving deep-seated food and body issues using methods adapted from Eastern mind/body practices such as yoga. What Are You Hungry For? is a discovery book in the tradition of Susie Orbach's Fat is a Feminist Issue and Geneen Roth's When Food is Love. It will change the way you think about your body and the way you approach preparing and eating every single meal. "Finally, an insightful book that ties together food and our spiritual practice What Are You Hungry For? provides both philosophical and practical ways to understand our relationship with what we take into our bodies and to how we are following our internal voices." --Rodney Yee, yoga teacher and star of the bestselling video series "Yoga Journal's Yoga with Rodney Yee"

Hungry for Ecstasy: Trauma, The Brain, and the Influence of the Sixties by Sharon Klayman Farber explores the hunger for ecstatic experience that can lead people down the road to self-destruction. In an attempt to help mental health professionals and concerned individuals understand and identify the phenomenon and ultimately intervene with patients, friends, and loved ones, Farber speaks both personally and professionally to the reader. She discusses the different paths taken on the road to ecstatic states. There are religious ecstasies, ecstasies of pain and near-death experiences, cult-induced ecstasies, creative ecstasies, and ecstasies from hell. Hungry for Ecstasy explores not only the neuroscientific processes involved but also the influence of the sixties in driving people to seek these states. Finally, Farber draws from her own personal and professional experience to advise others how to intervene on behalf of the person whose behavior puts his or her life at risk.

With the biting wit of Supersize Me and the passion of a lifelong activist, Joel Berg has his eye on the growing number of people who are forced to wait on lines at food pantries across the nation—the modern breadline. All You Can Eat reveals that hunger is a problem as American as apple pie, and shows what it is like when your income is not enough to cover rising housing and living costs and put food on the table. Berg takes to task politicians who remain inactive; the media, which ignores hunger except during holidays and hurricanes; and the food industry, which makes fattening, artery-clogging fast food more accessible to the nation's poor than healthy fare. He challenges the new president to confront the most unthinkable result of US poverty—hunger—and offers a simple and affordable plan to end it for good. A spirited call to action, All You Can Eat shows how practical solutions for hungry Americans will ultimately benefit America's economy and all of its citizens.

In your heart you feel the longing—an emptiness that can’t be satisfied by food, or friendships, or entertainment, or success, or anything this world can offer. Only God can fill the void. More than you know, you hunger for God. In Hungry for God, critically acclaimed author Margaret Feinberg puts you in touch with your desire for intimacy with your Creator and what it takes to find fulfillment. Feinberg writes, “The sound of his voice is spiritual nourishment, his voice a banquet for my soul—every syllable a tasty morsel, every expression flavored with love.” With rare insight into the Scriptures, human nature, and the heart of God, Feinberg invites you to discover the ways in which God speaks to you not from the top of some holy mountain, but in the midst of your everyday affairs. Learning to hear God’s voice isn’t as much a destination as it is a journey, and if you travel far enough, you’ll find yourself abiding in the presence of God. Passionate, honest, and filled with wisdom and inspiration, Hungry for God will help you cultivate the holy intimacy your spirit craves.
