Praise

“Nothing less than astonishing…It is nearly impossible to believe that a book on slow mass starvation could be in any way inspirational and yet that is what Hunger miraculously manages to do. A chronicle of righteous testimony and rage that must be read.”—Booklist (starred review)
 
“A broad-ranging, provocative examination of a problem that is likely only to grow.”—Kirkus

“Stark and moving…Caparrós offers an effective polemic on the horrors of hunger…”—Publishers Weekly

“A work of great significance that was the result of a multi-year odyssey among the richest and best-fed peoples on Earth, and among its poorest and hungriest, in an effort to understand how and why hunger persists in today’s world.” —The Columbia School of Journalism’s Maria Moors Cabot Prize Citation

“Martín Caparrós Hunger is more than wise . . . His writing brings us into an inferno of reality that most of us give only, at best, our distracted attention. —Roberto Saviano, author of Gomorrah

“The most important writer of narrative journalism: our Capote, our Kapuscinski.” —La Nacíon

“An impressive testimony, and an indictment.” —La Temps

“Important reading, because it gives the stricken a voice, and reveals a horrible global ‘normal’ as a scandal.” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

“Strange, singular, violent, necessary.” El Mundo
