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.

This book is a wonderful, exciting mix of personal storytelling and behavioral health examination. It is gripping, poignant, and absolutely enjoyable. A great read for anyone struggling with eating disorders or those who'd like to learn more.
Knapp's writing is four stars, but the story lacks the fluidity of her well-constructed prose. It is, however, a timely look into misogynistic advertising and how the media impacts girls' and women's vision of themselves.
I absolutely recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Issues related to appetite, desire, need, expectations, eating disorders, etc are really tricky and complicated---there are so many forces that influence these, from the media to entire industries predicated on feeding on women's vulnerabilities. This book puts all of that together in a cohesive and comprehensive work, naming patterns and themes that many of us experience on a day to day basis but could not understand on a larger and much more inclusive framework for how we live our lives.
This is a deeply engaging story, ranging from belly-laughing funny to piercingly painful to meticulously thoughtful. I thought this book was so interesting and useful that I bought it for all my friends for Christmas the year I read it, and am *still* buying it for people several years later. I am 34 years old so not quite a contemporary of Knapp's, but in the so-called post-feminist era there are so many things we do *not* talk about as young women, and reading this book was like looking into a mirror and seeing my own freckles and wrinkles for the first time - the shock or recognition and familiarity. I have been fortunate to never have grappled with significant eating disorders but simply as a woman of this Age I found this book incredibly compelling. And of course statistically, even if we don't have an eating disorder most of us have a close friend who does. Knapp helps shed light on their and all of our inner contortions.
Every reader, men and women alike will learn so much from this highly informative read by Caroline Knapp. She outlines society's effect on our thinking as men and women, and traces the course of her family relationships and how they related to her eating disorders
Amazing book on the connections to our struggles with food. Any women or man interested in learning about women's relationship with food should read this.
A good book to read if you are interested in learning about women's issues and eating disorders. I received the book from the seller quickly and it was in good shape.
Fascinating subject! Knapp took what seemed to be a simple topic of the desire to eat and relates it to our struggles with mothers, men, loneliness, and our universal need for pleasure. I've already lent my copy out ...
