Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ruth Simon is beautiful, smart, talented, and always hungry. As a teenager, she starved herself almost to death, and though outwardly healed, inwardly she remains dangerously obsessed with food. For Joseph Zimmerman, Ruth's tormented relationship with eating is a source of deep distress and erotic fascination. Driven by his love for Ruth, and haunted by his own secrets, Joseph sets out to unravel the mystery of hunger and denial. This gripping debut novel is a powerful exploration of appetite, love, and desire.

Jonathan Rosen is also the author of The Talmud and the Internet and the novel Joy Comes in the Morning. His essays have appeared in The New York Times and The New Yorker, among other publications. Rosen is the editorial director of Nextbook.
