    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.
