    I decided to re read this because its white spine always calls my attention next to the black spines of Austen and Bront My review from two and a half years ago, to paraphrase Talking Heads, seems to talk a lot but not say anything The Edible Woman was Atwood s first novel, and thus I must treat it like a first novel Atwood was twenty six when she wrote this, and it reads like it The

    The Edible Woman , Margaret Atwood s debut novel, is a slightly topsy turvy inverted fairytale, with shades of Mad Men in its focus on consumer culture and the stifling social conventions of the mid Sixties Published in 1969 but written a few years earlier, Atwood s sly humour elevates this story of one woman s identity crisis amid the restrictive expectations placed on young women of the time marriage a
