The Edible Woman
by Margaret Atwood
Audiofile Earphones Award Winner
"The prolific King ... understands the role of the voice in creating not just an emotional background, but a physical landscape as well." - Audiofile Magazine
Marian is truly ordinary, just waiting to get married. She likes her work, her broody flatmate, and her sober fiancé Peter. All goes well at first, but Marian has reckoned without an inner self that wants something more, an inner self that calmly sabotages her careful plans and stable routine: and her digestion. Marriage a la mode, Marian discovers, is something she literally can't stomach.
