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 knifeedge precision. Punctuated with wonderful illustrations by the author, they are vintage Atwood.'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'One of the world's major writers is having some fun; and who can grudge it her?' HERMIONE LEE, GUARDIAN'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'A neat, must-have little volume ... A splendid mix of tales, retellings of myths, fables and fairy stories, a couple of poems and fictional essays' SPECTATOR
