Midnight Feast, winner of a Betty Trask Award, is the dark and funny story of love in a convent boarding school. When sixteen-year-old Grace arrives at Mayo, she immediately falls for the mercurial and glamorously thin Colette MacSweeney. She soon finds herself descending with Colette into life-threatening anorexia, entangled in the dysfunction that seethes below the surface of Colette's family. This is a new and revised edition.

About the Author:

Martina Evans is an Irish poet and novelist. She has published nine books of prose and poetry. Facing the Public, her fourth collection, was a TLS Book of the Year and received the Piero Ciampi International Poetry Prize in 2011. Petrol, a dramatic prose poem, was published by Anvil Press in September 2012.

Review:

'A story of charismatic starvation (rather like an anorexic Madchen in Uniform), Evans's prose shimmers somewhere between strange and changeable between peculiarly heightened realism and sheer fever.' - Ali Smith, Times Literary Supplement.

'She'll give the Dublin Boys a good run for their money one day.' - Amanda Craig, Literary Review

'Superb.' - Kate Figes, The Independent on Sunday


'A nightmarish tale of two convent girls' descent into life-threatening bulimia...communicates the irrationality of childhood fears and passions as well as the incomprehensible affliction of eating disorders. - The Irish Times
