First published in 1995, Eat Me became an instant international bestseller - and caused a scandal in the US.

Julia is a photographer, Chantal edits a fashion magazine, Helen is a feminist academic and Philippa is a writer. These four friends haunt the cafes of inner-city Sydney, eyeing the passing talent and swapping outlandish tales.

Sexy, intelligent, predatory, they are women of their time - but can we believe their wild and wicked descriptions of their erotic exploits?

Linda Jaivin's sizzling debut plays havoc with our ideas of truth, sex and power.

Industry Reviews
'It is a delicious, bravura piece of comic and erotic writing, with an opening that will change your view of late-night supermarket shopping forever.' * Age *
'A high-spirited comedy of manners only thinly veiled as erotica...Jaivin never loses sight of her self-declared goal, which is to wrench the writing of erotica from its male practitioners, dress it up with style and sly humour and restore it to women.' * LA Times *
`funny and seductive' * Australian Womens Forum *
`a modern, racy flight of fun that becomes irresistible...the true strength of this book, though, is Jaivin's merciless wit and her ear for dialogue...She's bitchy, wicked and intelligent. She has firm control over her material and a talent for slicing through the pretension with the precision of a sushi knife.' -- Matthew Condon * Weekend Australian *
`This is erotic escapism at its best, with a touch of humour and a touch of class; a blend of fetishism, fun and kiwifruit!' * New Woman *
`this tossed salad of erotic scenarios charms as few examples of its genre have.' * Kirkus Reviews *
`very funny stuff.' * Washington Post *
`you'll enjoy this tasty romp-you'd better, you slave-and will thank Jaivin for the exquisite pleasure.' * Paper Magazine *
"It's erotic. It's feminist. It's like, way post-modern. Eat Me, it beckons.' * New York Post *
`some of the scenes described actually turned me on...' * Times Literary Supplement *
