The edible woman

By Margaret Atwood

Deliciously comic and glittering with insight this story tells of the fantastic and dramatic ego disintegration of a young woman who seems at first to be perfectly conventional.

Marian is determined to be ordinary. She lays her head gently on the shoulder of her serious fiancé and quietly awaits marriage. But she didn't count on an inner rebellion that would rock her stable routine, and her digestion. Marriage à 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 the desire to be consumed.
