"A sharply intelligent and intimate debut novel about a secret society of hungry young women who meet after dark and feast to reclaim their appetites--and their physical spaces--that posits the question: if you feed a starving woman, what will she grow into?" -- Provided by publisher.
Almost thirty, Roberta is stuck in a mindless job and reluctant to pursue her passion for food. When she meets Stevie, a spirited and effervescent artist, their intense friendship sparks a change in Roberta, a shift in her desire for more. Together, they invent the Supper Club, a collective of women who gather to celebrate, rather than admonish, their hungers. They gather after dark and feast until they are sick; they break into private buildings and leave carnage in their wake; they embrace their changing bodies; they stop apologizing. The club is a way to explore, discover, and push the boundaries of the space they take up in the world. But as it grows both in size and rebellion, Roberta is forced to reconcile herself to the desire and vulnerabilities of the body-- and the past she has worked so hard to repress. -- adapted from jacket
