Margaret atwood surfacing online dating
After a four-month absence, Elaine returns home to her friends for the next school year.
Upon her return, Elaine finds the dynamic of her group has been altered with the addition of the new girl, Cordelia.
But she didn't count on an inner rebellion that would rock her stable routine, and her digestion.
Marriage a la mode, Marian discovers, is something she literally can't stomach...
The cat's eye later appears as a common motif in Elaine's paintings, linked with those she perceived to be an ally, although she does not remember why it is associated with those feelings.
Elaine rediscovers the red purse years later, and as she looks through it, she regains all the memories she had lost: "her life entire".
Her newly found faith is tested when she continues to be poorly treated, even by Grace's mother.
The Edible Woman is a funny, engaging novel about emotional cannibalism, men and women, and the desire to be consumed.
