Milk-Fed

Milk-Fed by Melissa Broder—The hilarious and dynamic master who brought us The Pisces has returned! Broder is in the same class as fellow authors Jeanette Winterson, Otessa Moshfegh & Sally Rooney; savage, original writing which is instantly recognisable. Milk-Fed and its star character Rachel examine powerful and opposing food cultures; Y2K dieting versus nourishing Jewish cooking. Broder asks what can sustain us in a modern world, defined by economic austerity and deprivation of human contact? Keep an eye out for this one on upcoming awards longlists.
