Winner of The Guardian’s 2019 “Not the Booker” Prize
A story of female desire, friendship, lust, and, above all, hunger. . . This novel will alternately make you laugh, tear up, and text your group chat begging to start a wayward dining committee ~ Vogue
The most visceral, satisfying, wildly indulgent thing I’ve read in years – about growing up and learning how to embody conflicting desires, as a woman and an animal ~ Emma Jane Unsworth
Supper Club by Lara Williams
If you feed a starving woman, what will she grow into?
Twenty-nine year old Roberta has spent her whole life hungry. So she invents Supper Club: a secret society for women sick of bad men and bad sex. Fed up of being told to talk less, take less, be less, they gather after dark to feast and dance through the night. But as their bodies expand, so do their horizons, their desires – and their urge to break the rules.
You look hungry. Join the club.
A savagely funny and painfully truthful debut novel about hunger and friendship, bodies and the space they take up in the world.
