The Edible Woman

Margaret Atwood

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Funny, sharp, witty, clever' - The Times

Marian is determined to be ordinary. She lays her head gently on the shoulder of her serious fiancee and quietly awaits marriage. But she didn't count on an inner rebellion that would rock her stable routine, and her digestion. Marriage a la mode, Marian discovers, is something she literally can't stomach ... The Edible Woman is a funny, engaging novel about emotional cannibalism, men and women, and desire to be consumed.
