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 that she's "being" eaten. Marian ought to feel consumed with passion. But really she just feels...consumed. A brilliant and powerful work rich in irony and metaphor, "The Edible Woman" is an unforgettable materpiece by a true master of contemporary literary fiction.
