Hunger is the compelling journey into the mind of a young writer who is driven by starvation to constantly fluctuating extremes of euphoria and despair. It is a study of the psychological hinterlands - the very edges of experience - where few writers have courage to tread.


'Disturbing and difficult as this nightmarish novel is, it is a work of imaginative brilliance that resonates in our own day.' - Herald
