A savagely funny and perceptive coming-of-age debut novel - a battle cry for the #metoo generation
Twenty-nine year old Roberta has spent her whole life hungry - until the day she invents Supper Club.
Supper Club is a secret society for hungry women. Women who are sick of bad men and bad sex, of hinted expectations to be thinner, smile more, talk less. So they gather at night to feast and drink and dance, seeking the answer to a simple question: if you feed a starving woman, what will she grow into?
This is a story about the hunger that never goes away. It is a story about friendship, food and female rage. Above all, it is about the people who make us who we are - who lead us astray and ultimately save us.
