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 cafes 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 is the author of eight books. These include five novels and a novella (Dead Sexy) as well as the 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 shortlisted 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. Krissy Kneen is a bookseller and writer. She is the author of Swallow the Sound, Triptych and a memoir, Affection. She lives in Brisbane with her husband and no pets. 'Erotic escapism at its best, with a touch of humour and a touch of class; a blend of fetishism, fun and kiwi fruit!' New Woman 'It is a delicious, bravura piece of comic and erotic writing, with an opening that will change your view of late-night supermarket shopping forever.' Age 'A high-spirited comedy of manners only thinly veiled as erotica...Jaivin never loses sight of her self-declared goal, which is to wrench the writing of erotica from its male practitioners, dress it up with style and sly humour and restore it to women.' LA Times
