Since the library organizes its real-stories by Dewey Decimal classes, we thought it might be fun to do this re-cap of new ones by the numbers. For self-help readers (150s), Hunger by Roxane Gay explores the complexities guilt, shame and eating. Abused as a young woman, Gay “ate in the hopes that if I made myself big, my body would be safe.” This book “pulls no punches” (Kirkus Reviews). Journalist Mark Hastings made a name for himself as an investigative reporter (170s) before his untimely death. In The Operators, he detailed the political wrangling and unsuccessful efforts at nation building in Afghanistan. Hastings, said the NY Times, “seemed to know more about what was going on in than most insiders did” (NYT).
