June 2015 Indie Next Pick  An Amazon Best Book of May 2015 An Amazon Top 20 Best Books of the Year So Far, June 2015 A Publishers Marketplace Buzz Book A USA Today “New and Noteworthy” book 

Dietland completely blew me away. It's audacious and gutsy and heartbreaking and I want to grab women on the street and shake them until they promise to read it—and also buy copies for their daughters.” —Jennifer Weiner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Good In BedIn Her Shoes, and others

"If Amy Schumer turned her subversive feminist sketches into a novel, dark on the inside but coated with a glossy, palatable sheen, it would probably look a lot like  Dietland—a thrilling, incendiary manifesto disguised as a beach read...It’s a giddy revenge fantasy that will shake up your thinking and burrow under your skin, no matter its size."— Entertainment Weekly (Grade: A) "Read it not only because it’s smart and timely (and shocking: it explicitly takes on the adult film culture as well), but because it’s heartbreaking and tragic and very very comic (as long as you like your laughs dark) and because it will guarantee that you never look at a lipstick or a pair of stilettos or a bathroom scale the same way again. Sarai Walker is some kind of twisted sister. And of course I mean that as the highest possible compliment. "Sara Nelson, Amazon Editors' Top Picks for the Best Books of May "[Ms. Walker's] writing can spit with venom, at the rigid expectations of women’s weight and sexuality...As a social commentary,  Dietland is no shrill tirade. Ms. Walker captures the misery of failing to fit in, to fit into the right clothes, to fit in with the right people and their expectations."— Economist

"Witty and wise."— People  "Deft, witty...The cover might look like a breezy beach read, but this is anti-chick-lit for smart chicks."— A.V. Club “Sarai Walker deftly marries body insecurities and humor in her satirical debut.”— US Weekly “Finally, the feminist murder mystery/makeover story we’ve been waiting for.”— O, The Oprah Magazine “Walker’s first novel leaves chick lit in the pixie dust, treading the rougher terrain of radical critique and shadowy conspiracies — territory closer to Rachel Kushner than Helen Fielding.”— New York Magazine "A tale teeming with both sarcasm and honesty... Dietland transports readers to the front lines of the diet wars—a place where body positivity and a gratifying read are guaranteed."— BUST

But  Dietland resonated with the part of me that wants, just once, to deck a street harasser. At the very least, I wish an incurable itch upon everyone who has catcalled me on the street. I wish food poisoning and public embarrassment on everyone I've heard make a rape joke. I wish toothache and headlice and too-small shoes upon every stranger who has told me to smile. Which is to say, sometimes I forget I'm angry, but I am.  Dietland is a complicated, thoughtful, and powerful expression of that same anger.”—Annalisa Quinn, NPR.org "A confident, daring first novel . . . Walker writes beautifully, with natural dialogue and powerful characters. Her first-rate entrance into fiction is sure to spark the conversation she--and Plum--feel their audience needs to have."— Shelf Awareness

Présentation de l'éditeur :

An Amazon Best Book of the Year So Far A New York Post “Best Novel to Read This Summer” An Us Weekly “Hot Summer Novel” O, The Oprah Magazine, "10 Titles to Pick Up Now" A USA Today “New and Noteworthy” book One of Vulture's "8 Books You Need to Read This May" An Indie Next Pick   "Witty and wise."— People   "A giddy revenge fantasy that will shake up your thinking and burrow under your skin, no matter its size."— Entertainment Weekly (Grade: A) “Sarai Walker deftly marries body insecurities and humor in her satirical debut.”— US Weekly “Finally, the feminist murder mystery/makeover story we’ve been waiting for.”— O, The Oprah Magazine “Walker’s first novel leaves chick lit in the pixie dust.”— New York Magazine   The diet revolution is here. And it’s armed. Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed, because when you’re fat, to be noticed is to be judged. Or mocked. Or worse. With her job answering fan mail for a popular teen girls’ magazine, she is biding her time until her weight-loss surgery. Only then can her true life as a thin person finally begin. But when Plum notices she’s being followed by a mysterious woman in colorful tights and combat boots, she finds herself falling down a rabbit hole into the world of Calliope House, a community of women who live life on their own terms. Reluctant but intrigued, Plum agrees to a series of challenges that force her to deal with the real costs of becoming “beautiful.” At the same time, a dangerous guerilla group begins to terrorize a world that mistreats women, and as Plum grapples with her own personal struggles, she becomes entangled in a sinister plot. The consequences are explosive. Part coming-of-age story, part revenge fantasy , Dietland is a bold, original, and funny debut novel that takes on the beauty industry, gender inequality, and our weight loss obsession—from the inside out, and with fists flying.
