    I am beyond excited. Speechlessly so.

    I will die for this book.

    Be prepared to read this book with snacks on hand. The amount of food descriptions in here are abundant and it made me so hungry.

    There’s a scene in the book where she’s literally thinking about making out with some frozen yogurt and it was so hilarious and honestly kind of relatable. It sounded really delicious! 😂

    Uneven, explicit, sometimes very funny story of an agnostic but culturally Jewish talent manager/part-time comedian with an eating disorder and mommy issues who gains weight and redemption through a brief same-sex affair with the plump, Orthodox attendant in her favorite frozen yogurt shop.

    If that summary was a lot to absorb, this may not be the righ

    As expected, I was absolutely blown away by Melissa Broder's ability to write a perfect novel. After adoring THE PISCES a few years ago, I have been itching to read more from her, and MILK FED 100% did not disappoint. This book is a sexually explicit and tender lesbian romance that is also completely wild and hard to put into words. Rachel, the main character, is a yo

    I plan to do a full in depth review soon but i just quickly want to pop on and say that this book is PHENOMENAL. Broder’s prose is so specific and vivid and sensual and REAL. I loved the elements of religion (Judaism), Sexuality, eating disorders (all own voices) as they crashed into each other. it’s an erotic book but it’s also a literary masterpiece. Broder sometimes ta

    Melissa Broder's novels live somewhere in between contemporary literary fiction and guilty pleasure reading, if you believe in that sort of thing. I don't know if this one works as well for me as The Pisces, but, like its predecessor, it had me laughing out loud and occasionally marveling at her frank depictions of sexuality.

    Thank you to Simon&Schuster for an early glimpse of one of my favorite author's newest hit!

    Melissa Broder does it again with MILK FED, a deliciously complex and shocking hallucination, about the retrograde of human will under the duress of hunger (in the literal and metaphoric sense).

    Similar to her gorgeous debut novel, THE PISCES, Broder writes with razor-ed
