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 she's being eaten. She really ought to feel consumed with passion. But she just feels...consumed.

A brilliant and powerful work rich in irony and metaphor, The Edible Woman is an unforgettable masterpiece by a true master of contemporary literary fiction.

As delightful a novel as has come along in ages; the kind of book you hate to put down and usually don't.
