Readers may be familiar with Melissa Broder’s signature wry humor and relentlessly personal writing, thanks to her sharp, bitingly funny books, The Pisces and So Sad Today. This dark wit is on full display in Milk Fed, a novel that explores hunger, desire and spirituality with piercing insight and deep feeling. The book centers on Rachel, whose eating disorder holds a religious sway over her—until she meets Miriam, an Orthodox Jewish woman whose passion for food and her faith challenges everything Rachel thought she knew about both her body and soul.
