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)
Meeting Dates: Wednesdays, October 28 and November 4
