Supper Club Reviews

  • Jessica Sullivan
    This evocative novel is built around such a fierce and exciting premise: a group of women hungry for something more in their lives form a secret society called the Supper Club, where they get together every few weeks and feast on decadent foods all night long until they’re sick.

    This book is structured around the premise that bucking beauty standards by pigging out and getting fat is revolutionary and a feministprotest -- except EVERYONE is overweight now. According to the WHO, in 2014 (five years ago at this point), 62% of adults in the UK (where this book is set) were ove...

    'He's got a real problem with Supper Club. Like, he said we think we're doing something really profound, but actually, we're doing something which is at best basic, and at worst, just really fucking bourgeoise and gross.' Page 98 of the UK paperback edition gives it all away. I really wanted to like...
