Edible Woman | Margaret Atwood

Published in 1969, I read this in college in about 1985. They re-read shows it is still relevant, even if some cultural references are a little outdated. Social norms for woman around marriage, loss of self, self-abnegation...things haven‘t changed that much. A classic.

Second time reading this now! I think I'll write my next assignment on this. It's so well written and highlights the capitalist society we live in. Consumerism and capitalism could be the end... Atwood highlights this through her speculative fiction. #litstudent #dystopia #atwood #litstudentsoflitsy #coffeeandpaper

This was strange, very uncomfortable at times, but overall a fascinating read. Dystopian fiction at it's best! #catsoflitsy #justfinished #atwood #fiction #dystopian

3. Coffee, Diet Pepsi, and now wine.

In someone else‘s hands this would have been a cliché - woman who writes about fashion and trends goes to Caribbean island to deal with mental issues due to breast cancer/surgery and gets swept up in a banana republic revolution. But in Atwood‘s capable hands, it‘s philosophical and real and symbolic, all at the same time. Pre- Handmaid, but dealing with many of the same issues of power and identity.

DrexEdit I had similar thoughts about her book An Edible Woman. Almost any other author would not have been able to make the story so relevant. 2mo

“If you were a girl it was a lot safer to be decent than to be beautiful. If you were a boy, the question didn‘t arise; the choice was whether or not you were a fool.”

#bookandbeverage Getting ready to meet the lady herself in 7 days! (but who‘s counting?) #gratefulreads @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

merelybookish Oh, that's exciting! I saw her years and years ago (for Alias Grace) and she was stormed by a Canadian comedy troop. She handled it well. 2mo
OriginalCyn620 That‘s awesome! 2mo

vivastory @merelybookish Seriously?! How strange! Please tell me it wasn't Kids in the Hall. 2mo
merelybookish @vivastory No, but that would have been amazing! It's a show called This Hour has 22 Minutes and it was a fake news show. They had a woman who played a pushy ignorant correspondent. 2mo
