Some brief overview of this book

Ever since her engagement, the strangest thing has been happening to Marian McAlpin: she cant eat. First meat. Then eggs, vegetables, cake, pumpkin seeds—everything! Worse yet, she has the crazy feeling that shes 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.

writing career as a poet. Published In 1964 while she was still a student at Harvard, her second poetry anthology, The Circle Game, was awarded the Governor Generals Award, one of Canadas most esteemed literary prizes. Since then, Atwood has gone on to publish many more volumes of poetry (as well as literary criticism, essays, and short stories), but it is her novels for which she is best known. Atwoods first foray into fiction was 1966s The Edible Woman, an arresting story about a woman who stops eating because she feels her life is consuming her. Grabbing the attention of critics, who applauded its startlingly original premise, the novel explored feminist themes Atwood has revisited time and time again during her long, prolific literary career. She is famous for strong, compelling female protagonists — from the breast cancer survivor in Bodily Harm to the rueful artist in Cats Eye to the fatefully intertwined sisters in her Booker Prize-winning novel The Blind Asassin. Perhaps Atwoods most legendary character is Offred, the tragic breeder in what is arguably her most famous book, 1985s The Handmaids Tale. Part fable, part science fiction, and part dystopian nightmare, this novel presented a harrowing vision of womens lives in an oppressive futuristic society. The Washington Post compared it (favorably) to George Orwells iconic 1984. As if her status as a multi-award-winning, triple-threat writer (fiction, poetry, and essays) were not enough, Atwood has also produced several childrens books, including Princess Prunella and the Purple Peanut (1995) and Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes (2003) — delicious alliterative delights that introduce a wealth of new vocabulary to young readers.

Biography

When Margaret Atwood announced to her friends that she wanted to be a writer, she was only 16 years old. It was Canada. It was the 1950s. No one knew what to think. Nonetheless, Atwood began her writing career as a poet. Published In 1964 while she was still a student at Harvard, her second poetry anthology, The Circle Game, was awarded the Governor Generals Award, one of Canadas most esteemed literary prizes. Since then, Atwood has gone on to publish many more volumes of poetry (as well as literary criticism, essays, and short stories), but it is her novels for which she is best known.
