Eat Me (Linda Jaivin) – book review

Eat Me seemed ezt of a way to pass off porn than a story about the lives of four women. I liked how the author switched narrators so you got in everyone’s head.

May 12, amy rated it did not like it Shelves: Jun 27, Jay rated it it was ok Shelves: Lists with This Book. This is women’s erotica, mostly food-based and set in Sydney. And probably ne something I would choose if purchasing erotic fiction on purpose, either. Share Eat Me via: Some of it is genuinely pretty hot, but more of it is also just laughable. Eat Meit beckons.


I also discovered the name “Philippa” for the first time and kind of fell in love with it. Introduction by Krissy Kneen.

It was the late ’90s, so maybe these kinds of things were more sensational then, but I highly doubt it. They clash a bit and the ending is somewhat weak.

Her first novel was the internationally bestselling comic erotic Eat Me. I don’t believe this is a work of erotica. But it’s not enough to distinguish itself from any other erotica uaivin the end, and not enough to disguise that this is the kind of book that will drop lines like “She looked every bit the fashion editor she was”. Read it for yourself maybe you to will cruise the produce section a little differently with your own silent smile.

Helen’s surreal fantasy about finding Rambo washed up on Eta beach, her analytical letter describing a rough quickie with a truckie right under the Big Merino at Goulburn, and her affair with a student; excerpts from Philippa’s novel with the title Eat Meincluding an opening chapter describing debauchery in a supermarket; Julia’s affairs with young men and her “one-morning stand” with a Beijing snake-charmer during a trip to China; and Chantal’s story about hiring an agency escort and memories of a relationship with a poet a decade ago.


Return to Book Page. Mmm, not a turn-on to me. Please provide an email address.


I’m not from Sydney, but it’s still all kind of familiar. Also full of colorful characters. It was a little of both at times I’ll definitely be blushing the next time I visit the produce section at Whole Foods This is an jalvin book. Small Publisher of the Year.

I always find things more erotic when they’re set in some exotic location – like Australia. Dec 14, Karen Ext rated it liked it Shelves: Think Sex And The City set in Sydney in the 90s, but with more self-conscious engagement with feminist discourse, and less conventional romance.
