Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ever since her engagement, the strangest thing has been happening to Marian McAlpin: She can't eat. First meat. Then eggs, vegetables, cake, pumpkin seeds — everything! Worse yet, she has the crazy feeling that she has been eaten. Marian really ought to feel consumed by passion. But she just feels...consumed. A brilliant and powerful work rich in irony and metaphor, The Edible Woman is an unforgettable masterpiece of contemporary literary fiction.

"Chock-full of startling images, superbly and classically crafted...kept me in stitches half the time". — Saturday Night

"As delightful a novel as has come along in ages; the kind of book you hate to put down and usually don't". — Herald Magazine

"There is an incredible imagination working behind this novel...keen vision and music...wit and humor". — the Silhouette (Hamilton, Ontario)
