Midnight Feast

    By

    'Midnight Feast', winner of a Betty Trask Award, is the dark and funny story of love in a convent boarding school. When sixteen year-old Grace arrives at Mayo, she immediately falls for the mercurial and glamorously thin Colette MacSweeney. She soon finds herself descending with Colette into life-threatening anorexia, entangled in the dysfunction that seethes below the surface of Colette’s family. This is a new and revised edition.

    "A story of charismatic starvation (rather like an anorexic Madchen in Uniform), Evans’s prose shimmers somewhere strange and changeable between peculiarly heightened realism and sheer fever." – Ali Smith, Times Literary Supplement

    "She’ll give the Dublin Boys a good run for their money one day." – Amanda Craig, Literary Review

    "Superb" – Kate Figes, The Independent on Sunday

    "A nightmarish tale of two convent girls’ descent into life-threatening bulimia…communicates the irrationality of childhood fears and passions as well as the incomprehensible affliction of eating disorders." – The Irish Times
