  • Description or summary of the book: `If you find the subject of food to be both vexing and transfixing, you'll love What She Ate' Elle Did you know that Eleanor Roosevelt dished up Eggs Mexican (a concoction of rice, fried eggs, and bananas) in the White House? Or that Helen Gurley Brown's commitment to `having it all' meant dining on supersized portions of diet gelatine? In the irresistible What She Ate, Laura Shapiro examines the plates, recipe books and shopping trolleys of six extraordinary women, from Dorothy Wordsworth to Eva Braun.Delving into diaries, newspaper articles, cook books and more, Shapiro casts a different light on the usual narratives of women's lives. Finding meaning in every morsel, and looking through the lens of their attitudes towards food, she masterfully reveals the love and rage, desire and denial, need and pleasure, behind six remarkable appetites.
