By the author of The Handmaid's Tale and Alias Grace Marian is determined to be ordinary. She lays her head gently on the shoulder of her serious fiancee and quietly awaits marriage. But she didn't count on an inner rebellion that would rock her stable routine, and her digestion. Marriage a la mode, Marian discovers, is something she literally can't stomach ... The Edible Woman is a funny, engaging novel about emotional cannibalism, men and women, and desire to be consumed. 'Margaret Atwood not only has a sense of humour, she has wit and style in abundance ... a joy to read' Good Housekeeping 'Written with a brilliant angry energy' Observer 'A witty, elegant, generous and patient writer' Punch

From the Publisher:

"Chock-full of startling images, superbly and classically crafted...Kept me in stitches."
-Saturday Night

"Extraordinarily witty, and full or ironic observation."
-The Toronto Star

"Atwood has the magic of turning the particular and the parochial into the universal."
-The Times (London)

From the Back Cover:

“Articulate and sophisticated.…Extraordinarily witty, and full of ironic observation.…A tour de force.…”
Toronto Star

“[Atwood is] one of the most intelligent and talented writers to set herself the task of deciphering life in the late twentieth century.”
Vogue

“Remarkable.… The Edible Woman assumes the force of a banal dream that has turned, without the dreamer quite noticing, into a nightmare.…[It] conceals the kick of a perfume bottle converted into a Molotov cocktail.”
Time

“Delightful – spare, precise, mordantly witty.…Exquisitely written.”
Journal of Canadian Fiction

“[ The Edible Woman] is chock-full of startling images, superbly and classically crafted.…”
Saturday Night

“Few writers are able to combine wit and humour.…Margaret Atwood is a poet and novelist who seems to be able to do anything she wants.”
Newsweek

“A pleasure.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Funny, sharp, witty, clever.”
The Times (U.K.)

“Marked by a keen eye for evocative details which cohere into vivid incidents.”
Canadian Forum

“[Atwood is] a subtle and penetrating observer of relationships between men and women.”
Sunday Times (U.K.)

“Reflections on marriage, guilt and the relationship between the sexes – classic Atwood territory.”
The Guardian (U.K.)

“[Atwood] knows exactly what she is doing with every phrase.”
Vancouver Sun
