A good self help book in fictional form. ( )

Thanks to @librofm for the ALC!

I listened to Milk Fed on audio and it took me a while to get through it because it is not like anything I've ever read before. The best way to describe is that it is an experience. a very weird one.

I still don't know exactly how I feel after reading it. I can't say with certainty if I liked it but I'm not sure if I hated it either. The writing was graphic and packed a punch. There were times that I laughed out loud and others where I cringed and wanted to run away. I questioned if this was real life or if it was a psychedelic dream during several points in the story. The super descriptive details about food, consumption and purging were horrifying sometimes. There were plot points that felt so emotionally real, I wanted to put a call in to the protagonist's therapist.

In essence this was a book about the different types of hunger you encounter in the human experience:
🍨 Hunger for human connection
🍩 Hunger for spiritual connection
🎂 Hunger for identity
🧁 Hunger for intimacy and sexuality
🥧 Hunger for maternal love and acceptance

WARNING: If you have any issues with food or eating disorders stay far away from this one. If you want to experience a wild ride that will leave you confused, check this one out.

This is a unique, semi-serious/semi-tragic romp through a love affair based on frozen yogurt and in the breaking of religious boundaries. Rachel is 24 and living with an extremely exacting eating disorder to keep herself thin and immune to her mother's constant criticism and her comparisons to the "really thin" women of LA. At a yogurt shop for her tiny daily indulgence, she meets Miriam, an Orthodox Jewish daughter of the owner, who is lusciously fat (her self-description) and just gaw-guss to Rachel. They fall in love over kosher Chinese food and even weather an introduction to Miriam's large family, until the matriarch sniffs out Rachel's erotic attraction to Miriam. Rachel keeps eating and she and Miriam enjoy their erotic encounters to the benefit of both women. Both the sex and the food are voluptuously described, and there's a hilarious undercurrent (Rachel does standup comedy on the side) that makes this novel great big oversized fun. ( )

Author Melissa Broder explores the three-way intersection of food, sex and love in this comic novel. Narrator Rachel's restrictive eating disorder has defined her adult life, but she finally eases up on her compulsive calorie counting when she meets Miriam, the zaftig daughter of an Orthodox Jewish family. Their lesbian relationship, which is described in graphic detail, frees Rachel to embrace herself, her body, and even her soul.

This novel is sharply written, funny, and filled with wise observations about women, daughterhood, and food, even if the sex scenes get a little redundant. Recommended. ( )

What a joy this was to read--a thoughtful, smart and hilarious escape. Rachel is an incisive yet vulnerable narrator-- candid about her complicated relationship with her mother, eating disorder, skepticism about her therapist, (in part because she accepts Rachel’s insurance, LOL). The story unravels beautifully. Broder combines cultural/religious/food/nourishment-related themes making the journey incredibly rich. I loved watching Rachel INDULGE after denying herself actually good food for so long. The budding relationship with Miriam felt grounded but still exciting. I also appreciated how Rachel questioned elements of Judaism (namely, Israel). The ending gave me a feeling of closure and satisfaction. I will certainly reread. I think this is Broder’s best work yet. ( )
