ABOUT THE BOOK

A queer slice-of-life drama about dating and eating.

Anne thinks that getting a new place with her two best friends will be a fresh start — then she meets Marshall, the girl downstairs. Their friendship will trigger body image issues she thought she had left behind. Meanwhile, Gwen tries out polyamorous dating and Jane practically moves into the gym, where she quietly works through her problems and those of her friends. In Meat and Bone, Kat Verhoeven winds these threads into an unflinching, beautifully illustrated exploration of how three Toronto women define themselves.
