Eat My Heart Out

by Zoe Pilger

It’s rare that a debut novel has the power to both make the reader laugh out loud and sigh with admiration, but Zoe Pilger’s does just that.

At not yet 30, Pilger is somewhat of a wunderkind - art critic at The Independent, on track for a PhD at Goldsmiths College, all alongside penning this cheeky literary debut.

Her semi-autographical anti-heroine, Anne-Marie, is a 23-year-old Londoner, confused about life, love and what it means to be a woman.

It’s clever, delightful stuff, and you can be sure we’re going to see a lot more of young Ms Pilger.
