The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood


I can't count the number of times I've read this book as it was a text for two different English Lit classes (and the subject of two essays). It can be read from just about any perspective but in creating my interpretive cakes I'm only concerned with the following themes:
The focus on consumerism
Deconstruction of the self
Ideals of femininity

I'm going to have a lot of fun with this one.

Read, Bake, Eat along with me!
The Edible Woman is published in the UK by Virago Press
