The edible woman
Atwood, Margaret
Adult Fiction ATWOOD

Comments  Summary  Contents  Excerpt  Author Notes

Summary: 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)
