“The Edible Woman” was Atwood’s first published novel. Set in Toronto in the mid 1960’s on the cusp of the feminist movement, the book tells the story of Marian McAlpin, whose safe, carefully crafted world begins to crumble after Peter, her perfect, successful lawyer boyfriend, proposes. Suddenly unable to eat, Marian’s reality begins to slip. She unconsciously starts to reject the consumer-oriented world around her and society’s prescribed ideas of womanhood, as she tries to take control of her own life and choices.
