Introduced by Krissy Kneen

First published in 1995, Eat Me became an instant international bestseller - and caused a scandal in the US.

Julia is a photographer, Chantal edits a fashion magazine, Helen is a feminist academic and Philippa is a writer. These four friends haunt the cafés of inner-city Sydney, eyeing the passing talent and swapping outlandish tales.

Sexy, intelligent, predatory, they are women of their time - but can we believe their wild and wicked descriptions of their erotic exploits?

Linda Jaivin's sizzling debut plays havoc with our ideas of truth, sex and power.

With a new introduction by Krissy Kneen, author of Affection and Triptych.

Linda Jaivin's books include novels, a novella (Dead Sexy), a collection of essays Confessions of an S&M Virgin, and the China memoir The Monkey and the Dragon. Her 2006 novel The Infernal Optimist was short-listed for the Australian Literature Society Gold Medal. In addition, she has published many short stories and essays and has had several plays produced for the stage. She's also a literary and film translator from Chinese, a cultural commentator and public speaker. She likes reading, travel, food and other things. She lives in Sydney. Eat Me was her first novel.
