One of the world's most celebrated authors, Margaret Atwood has written a collection of smart and entertaining fictional essays, in the genre of her previous books, "Good Bones" and "Murder in the Dark". Chilling and witty, prescient and personal, delectable and tart, these highly imaginative tales tackle a broad range of subjects, reflecting the times we live in with deadly accuracy and knife-edge precision. Punctuated with wonderful illustrations by the author, they are vintage Atwood.

Reviews

'Atwood is one of the most inventive, enthralling and accomplished authors writing in English' Sunday Times 'These are fine, original takes on ancient stories ... How knowing she is; how quick. How easily she mocks herself, and us. She is our medicine' Independent 'Margaret Atwood's short stories are a breath of fresh air ... These are haunting, enigmatic tales that punch above their ethereal weight' Tatler 'Fresh and funny, and distinctively, dryly disconcerting ... Her wit is quicksilver, simultaneously succinct and elusive ... these nicely turned fragments engage the imagination, and tease the mind' Telegraph

This is a fantastic collection of short stories, a must for lovers of Margaret Attwood's work. They delve into a range of subjects and emotions, some cutting very close to the bone with her carefully chosen words, always tart and insightful. This book is one that can be read by dipping in and out, one story at a time, or may be a book that you can't lay down. Terrific!
