Dear Librarians,

For more than 30 years, Edie and Richard Middlestein shared a solid family life together in the suburbs of Chicago. But things are splintering apart, for one reason it seems: Edie's fixated on food. Do Edie's devastating choices rest on her shoulders alone, or are others at fault, too?

Written with pitch-perfect prose, huge compassion, and sly humor, THE MIDDLESTEINS is an epic story of marriage, family, and obsession—now in paperback! Jonathan Franzen raves, "THE MIDDLESTEINS had me from its very first pages."
