~by Margaret Atwood
The Edible Woman was Margaret Atwood's first published novel.
Marian McAlprin is living every woman's dream. She has a stable job, friends, and now is engaged to a successful, and attractive, man. But, after her engagement, her life begins to fall apart. She finds she can't eat certain things that she always has before, beginning with meat, then eggs, and eventually even vegetables. Finally, she can't bring herself to eat anything at all. In the end though, she seems to sort things out. A very interesting, and slightly bizarre, story.
