Product description

Review

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

A thrilling, incendiary manifesto disguised as a beach read.

--Entertainment Weekly

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

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 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

Book Description

The wickedly funny feminist revenge fantasy we've all been waiting for. 'A call to arms. Devious, subversive, delightful' Alice Sebold
