If you’re in Los Angeles this Wednesday night, come out to the PEN Center USA Book Club. I’m hosting, and the selection is Dietland by Sarai Walker. I’ve been rereading the book in preparation for the club and I’m finding it just as timely and provocative as the first time I read it, back when I blurbed it in 2014. I believe Sarai will be there, too — she’s in town working on the television adaptation of the book.
“It felt good to say the word fat.”
Hosted by Gabrielle Zevin and co-sponsored by Women Who Submit.
Specialty cocktails will be offered all night. Happy hour prices available for those who come early.
“Fight Club meets Margaret Atwood”—Bustle
“Dietland resonated with the part of me that wants, just once, to deck a street harasser…Which is to say, sometimes I forget I am angry, but I am. Dietland is a complicated, thoughtful and powerful expression of that same anger.”—Annalisa Quinn, NPR
