The novel that put Atwood on the literary map

The Edible Woman is both a scathingly funny satire of consumerism and a heady exploration of emotional cannibalism. Marked by blazingly surreal humor and a colorful cast of eccentric characters, it is a groundbreaking work of fiction.  Penguin Random House, Inc.

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.  Bantam Books

Witty, subversive, hilarious, The Edible Woman is dazzling and utterly original.  New Canadian Library

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