Cures for Hunger

A non fiction book by

"Where did such longings reside in us, passed on through blood or stories? It seemed to me then, hearing his words, that a father's life is a boy's first story." -from Cures for Hunger

At once an extraordinary family story and a highly unconventional portrait of the artist as a young man, Cures for Hunger is a singular, deeply affecting memoir, by one of the most acclaimed young writers in the world today.

"In Cures for Hunger, Deni Y. Bechard has created a moving story of rootlessness, rebellion, lost love, criminal daring, regret, and restless searching. Driven above all by the need to grasp his father's secrets, he has written his narrative in skillful, resonant prose graced with a subtle tone of obsession and longing."
-Leonard Gardner, author of Fat City
