Appetites: Why Women Want by Caroline Knapp

Appetites: Why Women Want

by Caroline Knapp

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
8 Hrs. 12 Min.


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, best-selling 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 beautifullyand urgentlychallenges all women to learn what it is to feed both the body and the soul.
