The Edible Woman written by Margaret Atwood is about women and their relationships to men, to society, to food and to eating.
In chapter 22, Marian and Duncan are invited to dine at Trevor's (Duncan's friend) apartment. I have to say honestly that not many events occur during this chapter but the ones that do are very significant for the development of the characters and satirical.

I believe that this is a sort of inroad to understanding the novel, depicting Marian as a type of "Alice". "Of course everybody knows Alice is a sexual-identity-crisis book . . . this is the little girl . . . trying to find her role … as a Woman.
