Waterstones Says

Celebrating food, feasting and the liberating power of female friendship, Lara Williams' novel follows a group of women brought together by a monthly supper club. As they eat, talk and take up space in a world that has taught them to not to, what starts as a simple idea becomes a catalyst for revelation and transformation. A debut that demands to be devoured whole in one glorious sitting, Supper Club is a hedonistic, subversive delight.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag meets Nora Ephron's Heartburn in this savagely funny and perceptive tale of rage and joy, hunger and friendship, bodies and the space they take up in the world.


Twenty-nine year old Roberta has spent her whole life hungry - until the day she invents Supper Club.

Supper Club is a secret society for hungry women. Women who are sick of bad men and bad sex, of hinted expectations to talk less, take less, be less. So they gather after dark and feast until they are sick. They drink and dance and roar. And, month by month, their bodies expand.

At the centre of the Supper Club stands Roberta - cynical yet anxious, precocious and lost. She is seeking the answer to a simple question: if you feed a starving woman, what will she grow into?

This is a story about the hunger that never goes away. And it is a story about the people who make us what we are - who lead us astray and ultimately save us. You look hungry. Join the club.
