Zoe Pilger's Eat My Heart Out made me think that Pilger might be the heiress to Angela Carter.
Hooray for Zoe Pilger: her debut novel is about the London we know and love and it is dead smart and gloriously, mercifully, snort-out-loud hilarious ... Eat My Heart Out is the hipster Bridget Jones's Diary it's ok to like
Like a foul-mouthed Nancy Mitford for the Gawker generation, Zoe Pilger brings a ruthlessly sharp eye to our muddled and indulgent times. Eat My Heart Out is viciously, violently funny, and marks the arrival of a fearsome new voice in British fiction.
Pilger has been compared to Sheila Heti and Lena Dunham but she is funnier
Eat My Heart Out is a romantic comedy without the romance; clever and biting, it is a satirical look at the narcissistic lives of twentysomethings in our post-post-feminist era
