Midnight Feast

'Midnight Feast', winner of a Betty Trask Award, is the dark and funny story of love in a convent boarding school. When sixteen year-old Grace arrives at Mayo, she immediately falls for the mercurial and glamorously thin Colette MacSweeney. She soon finds herself descending with Colette into life-threatening anorexia, entangled in the dysfunction that seethes below the surface of Colette’s family. This is a new and revised edition.

«A story of charismatic starvation (rather like an anorexic Madchen in Uniform), Evans’s prose shimmers somewhere strange and changeable between peculiarly heightened realism and sheer fever.» – Ali Smith, Times Literary Supplement

«She’ll give the Dublin Boys a good run for their money one day.» – Amanda Craig, Literary Review

“Superb” – Kate Figes, The Independent on Sunday

«A nightmarish tale of two convent girls’ descent into life-threatening bulimia…communicates the irrationality of childhood fears and passions as well as the incomprehensible affliction of eating disorders.» – The Irish Times
