I think you have to be Jewish to really understand this book.

Well written and a fast read.

I really tried with this book, could not get it, had to put it down.

I liked it - I'm a bit tired of reading about dysfunctional families and the universal battle with salt, sugar and fat...

The only reason why I am continuing to read this book is to get to the bottom of Edie's compulsive eating. Unfortunately, Robin is not very likable - if that is what Attenberg intended.

Jami Attenberg illuminates the complex effects of one woman's obsessive compulsion on everyone in her family
