Ruth Simon is beautiful, smart, talented, and always hungry. As a teenager, she starved herself almost to death, and though outwardly healed, inwardly she remains dangerously obsessed with food. For Joseph Zimmerman, Ruth's tormented relationship with eating is a source of profound distress and erotic fascination. Driven by his deep love for Ruth and haunted by his own painful secrets, Joseph sets out to unravel the mystery of hunger and denial. Blind to everything but his insatiable appetite for Ruth, Joseph is determined to save her, at all costs.
Part psychological mystery, part poignant love story, Eve's Apple brilliantly captures our passionate longing for knowledge, connection, and acceptance.
