9780385491068: The Edible Woman

The novel that put the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale on the literary map; a groundbreaking work of fiction.

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, while Marian ought to feel consumed with passion, she really 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 literature.
