Description

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's being eaten. Marian ought to feel consumed with passion. But really she just feels...consumed. A brilliant and powerful work rich in irony and metaphor, The Edible Woman is an unforgettable materpiece by a true master of contemporary literary fiction.

Editorial Review

"Chock-full of startling images, superbly and classically crafted...Kept me in stitches." — Saturday Night

"Extraordinarily witty, and full or ironic observation." —The Toronto Star

"Atwood has the magic of turning the particular and the parochial into the universal." — The Times (London)
