Summary
  • "Craving whatever she hasn't got and detesting whatever she has, Zoe Pilger's brilliant and psychically bulimic narrator is everyone's anti-Bridget Jones. An awareness of the pathology of romantic love, and a terror of what lies in its absence, lies at the heart of this brutally funny book."-Chris Kraus, author of I Love Dick"Protagonist Ann-Marie wanders through London's glittery underground of Bright Young Artists, concussed by life itself. Pilger's love story fictionalizes her contexts so extremely that every adolescent romance-with art, feminism, even that gross dude she had a one night stand with-is only a deceptive form mobilized to assault neutered authority. A masochistic siren song-100 percent more awesome than The Little Mermaid."-Trisha Low, author of The Compleat PurgeHalf-liberated, half-drunk, Anne-Marie is twenty-three, spiraling, and ironically detached when she meets Stephanie, a supremely serious, second wave feminist who becomes her mentor. Hilarious and unapologetic, this novel is a satirical look at the state of the post-post-feminist world and illuminates how-no matter what young women do-they are condemned for their sexual desires, career choices, and everyday philosophies.Zoe Pilger is an art critic for the Independent, winner of the 2011 Frieze International Writers Prize, currently working on her PhD at Goldsmiths, University of London. Eat My Heart Out is her first novel, and was published in the United Kingdom by Serpent's Tail to wide acclaim"--
  • "This satirical look at the state of the post-post-feminist world follows the friendship between ironically detached Ann-Marie and her supremely serious second wave mentor Steph. Hilarious and unapologetic, this novel illuminates how, no matter what they do, young women are condemned for their sexual desires, career choices, and everyday philosophies"--
