This book is a collection of stories of women connected physically by their presence in grocery stores and metaphorically by their hunger. The hunger is a play on words - it is really hunger for true companionship, honesty, love, understanding, psychic relief, life. And it does bring genius in its own way as these women learn to cope. Not only cope, but become wiser and more self realized than before life beat them around. This is not a sad book.

Diane Goodman's The Genius of Hunger gives readers ten memorable characters through ten short stories that deftly incorporate food and grocery stores to show just how much deeper our hunger can be than just for food. The women who give life to these stories are so human and memorable that they will stay with you long after putting the book down. The subtly that Goodman uses in creating these rich characters is impressive as is the range of voice that she is able to create as she brings each of these women to life on the page. These characters will bring to the verge of tears and they will make you laugh. Through these characters readers will be reminded of the frailty of human psychology and how difficult it can be to try to deal with a range of issues; these women are overweight, have a hard time relating to their children, have a hard time comprehending the loss of husbands and children, or the inability of other women to stand up for themselves, and these strive to be comfortable with themselves in the world. While these characters are all women, their struggles and stories are universal because have all hungered for something more than just nourishment through food in our lives. One of the stories does feel a bit big for its britches as it attempts to incorporate three women into the umbrella of one character, but nonetheless, this is a fantastic debut from a fine writer. It is a shame that Carnegie Mellon could not have found a better copy editor for such a fine writer, as the text is rife with typographical errors.

Goodman does an excellent job of capturing her reader's attention within the first few sentences of each story. She allows the reader into the minds of her characters, leaving us feeling as if we're going through the motions with them. Goodman's writing is character driven and extremely emotional. I believe because of this women identify with Goodman's short stories more than men, so in my opinion this book is definitely a chick book, although I do believe men could find it to be quite an enjoyable read. All the characters are women; women that possess a hunger for acceptance. This hunger takes place in a supermarket, where food is utilized as a parallel to each storyline. I say that this book is a chick book because stereotypically women fulfill their absent desires with food and although Goodman doesn't wear the reader out with this analogy, it is still evident. Goodman ropes the reader in by each character's individual hardship that they are experiencing in life. Not only does Goodman's unique style of writing intrigue the reader to know more, but it also allows us to experience each woman's trials and tribulations as if we were standing right next to them. The wide variety of women Goodman portrays alongside with the very many different occupations each holds permitted me to experience the story even more because then there would be at least one woman that I was able to identify with. The realism is magnificent! I believe this to be the best part of this collection of short stories.

Diane Goodman's "The Genius of Hunger" is an easy and insightful read comprised of ten short fiction stories. This book chronicles the lives of very different yet equally intriguing women. Each woman is symbolically hungry for something more in her life. Many of these characters are hungry for a greater voice in their world, whether it is in their workplace, their romantic relationships, or their family lives. Joan is a woman who is disrespected by, yet still adores her only son. She works hard to provide for him, yet is only hurt in return. Spirit tries to rebuild her life: ending a significant relationship and relocating to Miami. These characters are so vividly realistic that we may know our own "Spirit's" or "Joan's". Goodman is a powerful writer who places details about each character so seamlessly and flawlessly that by the end of each story we feel we know every character personally. This is done effortlessly; one does not even realize how quickly we are being lead into another's life. These are everyday women with authentic actions. Goodman subtly introduces private details about each character allowing the reader to feel close to them. The only flaw in this book is that there are a surprising number of typos throughout. These mistakes may get annoying, as you may have to stop to reread a sentence for it to make sense. Other than that, I would recommend this book to anyone, especially a woman.

Not only cope, but become wiser and more self realized than before life beat them around. This is not a sad book. It is uplifting in a very "real" way. I read it at one sitting and could not put it down. The publisher was asleep during the editing/printing (there are many publisher typos) but other than that it is a flawless collection of honest stories.

Diane Goodman's first book of stories is accomplished and distinctive. Her knowledge and love of food/cooking/nourishing in everywhere apparent.

These short stories give you a glimpse into the lives of such interesting people that all I can say is ... when will Diane Goodman give us a novel? You'll find these stories stay with you and the women will not only haunt you, you'll start seeing them around you!
