Ruth Simon is beautiful, smart, talented, and always hungry. As a teenager, she starved herself almost to death, and though outwardly healed, inwardly she remains dangerously obsessed with food. For Joseph Zimmerman, Ruth's tormented relationship with eating is a source of deep distress and erotic fascination. Driven by his love for Ruth, and haunted by his own secrets, Joseph sets out to unravel the mystery of hunger and denial. This gripping debut novel is a powerful exploration of appetite, love, and desire.

Editorial Reviews

"Crisp and glittering...a thinking person's love story." -The Wall Street Journal"An absorbing, intelligent tale of love and the mysteriousness of the other." -The New York Times"An impressive debut. A highly original addition to the distinguished line of Jewish-American family romances." -The New Yorker"A seductive and satisfying novel that doesn't let you go." -Newsday"The work of a natural master...This is a tale about a hunger artist---i.e., about appetite and its suppression, about knowledge and self-knowledge, and--above all--about the riddle of human character." -Cynthia Ozick
