This is one I hadn't heard of, Michael. Will keep it in mind. Thanks.

Margaret Read this one in the late 70's or so. I remember (misremember?) it as a part of a wave of titles by women being published and sold to feminists and feminist sympathizers. The only image within the book that I remember now is that of a bowl of chicken soup: the father got all the fat globules and his daughters ate lighter and stayed hungrier.

Now you see, I missed the 70's feminist wave but I'm not surprised that it was an ur-text. It is indeed details like the fat in soup that make it compelling.
