A woman known only as A lives in an unnamed American city with her roommate, B, and boyfriend, C, who wants her to join him on a reality dating show called That’s My Partner! A eats (or doesn’t eat) the right things, watches endless amounts of television, often just for the commercials, and models herself on a standard of beauty that exists only in such advertising.

Meanwhile, B is attempting to make herself a twin of A, who in turn hungers for something to give meaning to her life, something aside from C’s pornography addiction.

Alexandra Kleeman’s unforgettable debut is a missing-person mystery told from the point of view of the missing person—an American horror story that concerns sex and friendship, consumption and appetite, faith and transformation, real food and reality television.
