"An unforgettable portrait of the artist as a young immigrant gay poet. These brief, passionate chapters are filled with rare courage, raw honesty, and the uncommon beauty of a life spent yearning for consolation and hope. Absolutely arresting."—Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic & Desire

"A haunting book, whose many senses linger long after reading it."—Mary Cappello, author of Awkward: A Detour

This is a beautifully sculpted rendition of what it feels like to differ from an established norm, any norm. I thank the author for speaking out. I thank the author for his honesty. Autobiography of My Hungers is a book every one should read for a myriad of reasons.
