'Part Fight Club, part feminist manifesto, an offbeat and genre-bending novel that aims high - and delivers.' - Kirkus Review 'Sarai Walker has written a call to arms. Devious, subversive, delightful, Dietland is a Scum Manifesto set to a pop music beat, and Plum Kettle is a feminist hero for the modern age.' - Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones The diet revolution is here. And it's armed. Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed, because when you're fat, to be noticed is to be judged. Or mocked. Or worse. She works answering fan mail for a popular teen magazine, and is biding her time until her weight-loss surgery. Only then can her 'true life' as a thin person finally begin. But when Plum notices she's being followed by a mysterious woman in colorful tights and combat boots, she finds herself falling down a rabbit hole into the world of Calliope House, a community of women who live life on their own terms. Reluctant but intrigued, Plum agrees to a series of challenges that force her to deal with the real costs of becoming 'beautiful.' At the same time, a dangerous guerrilla group begins to terrorize a world that mistreats women, and as Plum grapples with her personal struggles, she becomes entangled in a sinister plot. The consequences are explosive. Part coming-of-age story, part revenge fantasy, Dietland is a bold, original, and funny debut novel that takes on the beauty industry, gender inequality, and our weight-loss obsession from the inside out - and with fists flying.
