Dietland will be adapted into AMC's 10-episode straight-to-series starring multiple-Emmy winner Julianna Margulies and Joy Nash.

Plum Kettle does her best not to be noticed, because when you're fat, to be noticed is to be judged. Or mocked. Or worse.

But when a mysterious woman starts following her, Plum finds herself involved with an underground community of women who live life on their own terms. At the same time, a dangerous guerrilla group called "Jennifer" begins to terrorize a world that mistreats women. As Plum grapples with her personal struggles, she becomes entangled in a sinister plot, the consequences of which are explosive.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Devastatingly funny * The Pool *
Spiky, funny... Wonderfully unapologetic, off-beat and a lot of fun * Elle *
As funny as it is fierce * Glamour *
An amazing, different and transformative novel * Daily Mail *
A call to arms. Devious, subversive, delightful * Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones *
What looks like feel-good fluff becomes an angry, surreal feminist Fight Club * Independent Magazine *
Ferocious and hilarious * Margaret Atwood *
As funny as it is thought-provoking... a joy to read * Heat Magazine *
What opens as a beach read evolved into a tart, electrifying revenge tale * Mail on Sunday *
Disturbing, surprising, and refreshingly angry * New York Magazine *
Finally, the feminist murder mystery/makeover story we've been waiting for * O, The Oprah Magazine *
This modern makeover story is super-smart, forward-thinking and honest. * Essentials *
Witty and wise * People *
Captures the misery of failing to fit in, to fit into the right clothes, to fit in with the right people and their expectations * The Economist *
It's vanishingly rare to see a novel that looks like the much-maligned 'chick lit' - and sometimes reads like it - so gleefully censorious of rape culture * Guardian *

“Fat women and feminist terror squads? Where do I sign up?!”
