December 2020 Indie Next List

“A surprising novel that will lure you in with its delicious writing and leave you hungry (in more ways than one). Food critic Dorothy Daniels wants good food and good sex, and she will go to whatever lengths she needs in order to get them. At once a critique of the food industry and a criminal’s account, A Certain Hunger is a stunning feminist page-turner. With its devious protagonist and delectable prose, you will devour this novel.”
— Marika McCoola, Porter Square Books, Cambridge, MA

Winter 2022 Reading Group Indie Next List

“Protagonist Dorothy is an unforgettable character—unapologetic and snobby, a confident aesthete who is a killer psychopath writing her memoir from prison. Reminiscent of early Donna Tartt and Bret Easton Ellis.”
— Mimi Hannan, La Playa Books, San Diego, CA

Staff Reviews

"A delightfully dark tale about a food critic who also happens to be an insatiable psychotic murderer (think American Psycho but with feminist flavor). Summers brilliantly uses food metaphors to fill in the gruesome and gory details. The cornucopia of gallows humor, wit, and sarcasm make this twisted story palatable."--Reviewed by Cristina

Eat Pray Love meets American Psycho in a seductive and sinister debut literary thriller.

Food critic Dorothy Daniels indulges in her homicidal urges by murdering her lovers and devouring their organs in this intense, visceral, and lushly told tale of food, sex, power, and the pursuit of a very particular taste set between New York and Italy.

Please Note: A Certain Hunger contains adult language and depictions of violence. Discretion is advised.
