We are thrilled to welcome author Emily Robinson to Book Banter!
“Consumed is a lament, a thriller, a frenzy, a love story. Emily Robinson has written a wild book about confounding hunger.— Hilary Leichter, author of Temporary and Terrace Story: A Novel
Consumed is a subversive tale of love, loss, and psychoses set in the digital age. Amber, a young New York native, embarks on a journey of psychotherapy, self-exploration, sexual awakening, and maybe a little bit of cannibalism. Seizing the opportunity to escape to Italy for the summer, she meets the seductive and intriguing Natalia. Bound together in youthful carnality, they find themselves pulled down into a pit, or pot, of despair.
Emily Robinson is a writer, actor, and director. She earned her BA in Creative Writing from Columbia University, where she developed her debut novel, Consumed. Her other work has been featured in publications such as Teen Vogue, Hello Giggles, and Dry River. Emily now lives a short drive—or a long walk—away from here.
