Product description

Review

This is the most original and exciting book I've reviewed in these pages... a transformative debut that asks its readers to confront social expectations and their own prejudices. Buy this for yourself and then for all your friends - and let the discussion begin. I can't stop thinking about it. - Daily Mail

A smart, sassy and provocative read that I thoroughly enjoyed - Woman and Home

What opens as a beach read evolved into a tart, electrifying revenge tale - Mail on Sunday

A book everyone will be talking about: Dietland is a funny, feminist read...smart and original - Good Housekeeping

Devastatingly funny - The Pool

A book with a message, loud and clear - Guardian

A middle finger to the objectification of women...whenever I started to feel too reflective or sad, Walker revealed a plot twist that made me throw my head back and belly laugh, or inhale deeply in shock. Written with self-deprecatory wit that reminded me of Lena Dunham's style of humour, this modern makeover story is super-smart, forward-thinking and honest. I'm reading it again immediately - Essentials

Walker's first novel leaves chick lit in the pixie dust, treading the rougher terrain of radical critique and shadowy conspiracies - territory closer to Rachel Kushner than Helen Fielding...Underneath the baggage - physical and political - is a character thoughtful, warm, and plausible enough to carry it off. - New York Magazine

Finally, the feminist murder mystery/makeover story we've been waiting for. - O, The Oprah Magazine

Dietland is genuinely disturbing, surprising, and refreshingly angry - it encapsulates a wide array of feminist issues from pornography to fat positivity to body image to the objectification of women's bodies. - New York Magazine

A thrilling, incendiary manifesto disguised as a beach read. - Entertainment Weekly

A very entertaining feminist revenge fantasy with a kernel of fury - I can't recall reading anything quite like it before. - The Bookseller - Editor's Choice

Dietland is a funny, subversive novel which takes aim at the weight-loss industry and our obsession with rigid standards of beauty, but at its heart there is a kernel of fury at what is done to women by men. - The Bookseller

Read Dietland ... not only because it's smart and timely but because it's heartbreaking and tragic and very very comic. Sarai Walker is some kind of twisted sister. And of course I mean that as the highest possible compliment. - Sara Nelson, Top Picks for the Best Books of May

Hilarious, surreal, and bracingly original... Part Fight Club, part feminist manifesto, an offbeat and genre-bending novel that aims high-and delivers. - Kirkus, starred review

Review

'Sarai Walker has written a call to arms. Devious, subversive, delightful, Dietland is a SCUM Manifesto set to a pop music beat and Plum Kettle is a feminist hero for the modern age.' (Alice Sebold)

'Part Fight Club, part feminist manifesto, an offbeat and genre-bending novel that aims high – and delivers.' (Kirkus Reviews)

'An absolute must-read!' (Cosmopolitan)

'This audacious debut from a New York writer will certainly spark debate at book club.' (The West Australian)
