A woman known only as A lives in an unnamed American city with her roommate, B, and boyfriend, C, who wants her to join him on a reality dating show called That's My Partner! A eats (or doesn't eat) the right things, watches endless amounts of television, often just for the commercials, and models herself on a standard of beauty that exists only in such advertising.
Meanwhile, B is attempting to make herself a twin of A, who in turn hungers for something to give meaning to her life, something aside from C's pornography addiction.
Alexandra Kleeman's unforgettable debut is a missing-person mystery told from the point of view of the missing person-an American horror story that concerns sex and friendship, consumption and appetite, faith and transformation, real food and reality television.
