  • Short Description

Kim Delorme is uninterested in the world beyond her computer screen, instead living on a diet of video games, early 2000s Internet videos, and fads. It?s not long before she discovers mukbangs, a voyeuristic world where people overeat in front of the camera. But a horrifying incident halts her ascension into their ranks, creating a shock wave that affects everyone in her life.

Mukbang is a grimy, shocking, and darkly funny dive into our relationships with food, self-image, and intimacy.

Kim Delorme is uninterested in the world beyond her computer screen, instead living on a diet of video games, early 2000s Internet videos, and fads. It?s not long before she discovers mukbangs, a voyeuristic world where people overeat in front of the camera. Intrigued, she throws herself into the ring to challenge the reigning queen, Misha Faïtas. But a horrifying incident halts her ascension, creating a shock wave that affects everyone in her life.

Mukbang is a grimy, shocking, and darkly funny dive into our relationships with food, self-image, and intimacy. True to its subject matter, Mukbang is sprinkled with QR codes throughout, each leading to an image, reference or video that enhances and adds context to the narrative.

Fanie Demeule's five books and short stories have won accolades and awards, and two of her titles are currently being adapted for film. After Lightness (Linda Leith Publishing, 2020, translated by Anita Anand), Mukbang is her second novel translated into English. She lives on the south shore of Montreal.

"Mukbang is as intriguing as it is disturbing." ??Léa Harvey, Le Soleil

"In this disturbing dystopian food thriller, Demeule dives into the rabbit hole that is the Internet." ??Dominic Tardif, Le Devoir

"Demeule is building a body of work that explores themes of obsession from all angles. You start her novels full of doubt but are soon caught in the suspense of the ordinary world made very strange." ??Chantal Guy, La Presse
