Supper Club

Williams, Lara

£8.99

29 year old Roberta has spent her whole life hungry – until the day she invents Supper Club. Supper Club is a secret society for hungry women. Women who are sick of bad men and bad sex, of hinted expectations to talk less, take less, be less. So they gather after dark and feast until they are sick. They drink and dance and roar. And, month by month, their bodies expand. At the centre of the Supper Club stands Roberta – cynical yet anxious, precocious and lost. She is seeking the answer to a simple question: if you feed a starving woman, what will she grow into? This is a story about the hunger that never goes away. And it is a story about the people who make us what we are – who lead us astray and ultimately save us.

WINNER of the GUARDIAN ‘NOT THE BOOKER’ PRIZE 2019

BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR – Vogue, TIME, Vulture, Woman and Home, and many more

‘Subversive, radical, written with total glee and rollicking sense of unlimited possibility. Williams is one to watch’ Stylist

If you feed a starving woman, what will she grow into?

Twenty-nine year old Roberta has spent her whole life hungry. So she invents Supper Club: a secret society for women sick of bad men and bad sex. Fed up of being told to talk less, take less, be less, they gather after dark to feast and dance through the night. But as their bodies expand, so do their horizons, their desires – and their urge to break the rules.

You look hungry. Join the club.
