By the author of The Handmaid’s Tale and The Testaments

A leathery bog-man transforms an old love affair; a sweet, gruesome gift is sent by the wife of an ex-lover; landscape paintings are haunted by the ghost of a young girl. This dazzling collection of ten short stories takes us into familiar Atwood territory to reveal the logic of irrational behaviour and the many textures lying beneath ordinary life.

‘Atwood is a writer of importance, with a deep understanding of human behaviour, a beautiful understated style and, rarest of all, a broad scope’ Marilyn French

‘Funny, sharp and always incisive’ Time Out

‘Everything Atwood forms in words has substance and weight’ Daily Telegraph

‘Margaret Atwood deserves an adjective – Atwoodian – in recognition of her virtuoso wit and unmistakable style’ Chicago Tribune
