Critically acclaimed author Dana Spiotta has written a bold and moving novel about a fugitive radical from the 1970s who has lived in hiding for twenty-five years. Eat the Document is a hugely compelling story of activism, sacrifice, and the cost of living a secret. Shifting between the protests in the 70s and their consequences in the 90s, Spiotta deftly explores the connection between the two eras.


"Spiotta's writing brims with energy and intelligence." -- The New York Times Book Review


"Infused with subtle wit...singularly powerful and provocative...Spiotta has a wonderful ironic sensibility, juxtaposing '70s fervor with '90s expediency." -- The Boston Globe


"Scintillating...Spiotta creates a mesmerizing portrait of radicalism's decline." -- The Seattle Times


"Stunning...a glittering book that possesses the staccato ferocity of Joan Didion and the historical resonance and razzle-dazzle language of Don DeLillo." -- Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
