Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385491069, Paperback)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 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 literary fiction.

Marian is determinedly ordinary. She likes her work, her broody flat-mate and sober fiance. But she reckons without an inner self that wants more. Marriage a la mode, Marian discovers, is something she literally can't stomach.
