For more than thirty years, Edie and Richard Middlestein shared a solid family life together in the suburbs of Chicago. But now things are splintering apart, for one reason: Edie's life-threatening obsession with food and the growing girth to match. When Richard abandons his wife, it is up to the next generation to pick up the pieces. Robin, their schoolteacher daughter, is determined that her father pay for leaving Edie. Benny, an easy-going, pot-smoking family man, just wants to smooth things over. And Rachelle — a whippet thin perfectionist — is intent on saving her mother-in-law's life. Through it all, they wonder: do Edie's devastating choices rest on her shoulders alone, or are others at fault, too?
Jami Attenberg is the author of Instant Love, The Kept Man, and The Melting Season. Her essays and criticism have appeared in numerous places including The New Yorker, Salon, and Nylon. A Chicago native, she lives in Brooklyn.
