Stone Mattress

Stone-Mattress-UK-cover-June-2014

Margaret Atwood turns to short fiction for the first time since her 2006 collection, “Moral Disorder“, with nine tales of acute psychological insight and turbulent relationships bringing to mind her award-winning 1996 novel, “Alias Grace“.

A recently widowed fantasy writer is guided through a stormy winter evening by the voice of her late husband in “Alphinland,” the first of three loosely linked stories about the romantic geometries of a group of writers and artists.

In “The Freeze-Dried Bridegroom,” a man who bids on an auctioned storage space has a surprise.

In “Lusus Naturae,” a woman born with a genetic abnormality is mistaken for a vampire.

In “Torching the Dusties,” an elderly lady with Charles Bonnet syndrome comes to terms with the little people she keeps seeing, while a newly formed populist group gathers to burn down her retirement residence.

And in “Stone Mattress,” a long-ago crime is avenged in the Arctic via a 1.9 billion-year-old stromatolite.

In these nine tales, Margaret Atwood is at the top of her darkly humorous and seriously playful game.



MaddAddam

Margaret Atwood’s latest novel brings together two of her previous works, Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood in a thrilling conclusion that points towards the ultimate endurance of community, and love.

“The final entry in Atwood’s brilliant MaddAddam trilogy roils with spectacular and furious satire … Her vision is as affirming as it is cautionary, and the conclusion of this remarkable trilogy leaves us not with a sense of despair at mankind’s failings but with a sense of awe at humanity’s barely explored potential to evolve.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“An epic dystopian journey through a wasteland of high science and low deeds that ends in hope.” – The Independent

“The final entry in Atwood’s brilliant MaddAddam trilogy roils with spectacular and furious satire.” – Publishers Weekly



The Year of the Flood

A natural disaster has altered the Earth as we know it, obliterating most human life. The story that unfolds is a testament to Margaret Atwood’s visionary power.

“A heart-pounding thriller.” —The Washington Post Book World

“Leave it to Atwood to find humor in a post-apocalyptic world as she covertly, and brilliantly, addresses questions of how we need to live on an imperiled planet.” —Kansas City Star

“Atwood is funny and clever, such a good writer and real thinker. . . . The Year of the Flood isn’t prophecy, but it is eerily possible.” —The New York Times Book Review



Oryx and Crake

isbn9780349004068-detail

Oryx and Crake is at once an unforgettable love story and a compelling vision of the future that is both all too familiar and beyond our imagining.

“Atwood has long since established herself as one of the best writers in English today, but Oryx and Crake may well be her best work yet. . . . Brilliant, provocative, sumptuous and downright terrifying.” —The Baltimore Sun

“Her shuddering post-apocalyptic vision of the world . . . summons up echoes of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess and Aldous Huxley. . . . Oryx and Crake [is] in the forefront of visionary fiction.” —The Seattle Times

“A book too marvelous to miss.” —The San Diego Union-Tribune




Alias Grace

alias gracealias gracealias grace

In Alias Grace, bestselling author Margaret Atwood takes us back in time and into the life of one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of the nineteenth century.

Alias Grace has all the pacing of a commercial novel and all the resonance of a classic.”
–Washington Post Book World

“A stunning novel full of sly wit, compassion and insight, boasting writing that is lyrical, assured, evocative of time and place, and seductive in its power to engage us.”
–Houston Chronicle

“Atwood provides the elements of a walloping good read: suspense, mystery, titillation, and a fully crafted but never ponderous historical milieu.”
–St. Louis Post-Dispatch



The Edible Woman

The Edible Woman

A brilliant and powerful work rich in irony and metaphor, The Edible Woman is an unforgettable masterpiece by a true master of contemporary literary fiction.

“Chock-full of startling images, superbly and classically crafted…Kept me in stitches half the time.”
–Saturday Night

“Atwood has the magic of turning the particular and the parochial into the universal.”
–The Times (London)

“Margaret Atwood takes risks and wins.”
–Time



Surfacing

Part detective novel, part psychological thriller, Surfacing is a rich mine of ideas from an extraordinary writer about contemporary life and nature, families and marriage, and about women fragmented…and becoming whole.



The Blind Assassin

the-blind-assassin

The Blind Assassin is a work of extraordinary power. It is an exploration not only of imagined lives past, present, and future, but of the art and artifice of storytelling, crossing boundaries of genre and style in a tour de force of creative daring.

“Absorbing… expertly rendered… Virtuosic storytelling [is] on display.”
The New York Times

“Brilliant… Opulent… Atwood is a poet…. as well as a contriver of fiction, and scarcely a sentence of her quick, dry yet avid prose fails to do useful work, adding to a picture that becomes enormous.”
–John Updike, The New Yorker

“Bewitching… A killer novel…. Atwood’s crisp wit and steely realism are reminiscent of Edith Wharton… A wonderfully complex narrative.”
The Christian Science Monitor



The Handmaid’s Tale

handmaidstale

In the world of the near future, who will control women’s bodies? Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid’s Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force.

“A novel that brilliantly illuminates some of the darker interconnections between politics and sex . . . Just as the world of Orwell’s 1984 gripped our imaginations, so will the world of Atwood’s handmaid!”
–Washington Post Book World

“Atwood takes many trends which exist today and stretches them to their logical and chilling conclusions . . . An excellent novel about the directions our lives are taking . . . Read it while it’s still allowed.”
–Houston Chronicle

“Splendid.”
–Newsweek



Cat’s Eye

mcclelland-catsEye

Cat’s Eye is the story of Elaine Risley, a controversial painter who returns to Toronto, the city of her youth, for a retrospective of her art. Engulfed by vivid images of the past, she reminisces about a trio of girls who initiated her into the fierce politics of childhood and its secret world of friendship, longing, and betrayal.

“Atwood conceives Elaine with a poet’s transforming fire; and delivers her to us that way, a flame inside an icicle.”
Los Angeles Times

“Irresistible.…This book is about life for all of us.”
The Times (U.K.)

“No reader will fail to be moved, even to tears, by this novel. It is poignant and lingering.”
–Aritha van Herk, Calgary Herald



The Robber Bride

Margaret Atwood’s The Robber Bride is inspired by “The Robber Bridegroom,” a wonderfully grisly tale from the Brothers Grimm in which an evil groom lures three maidens into his lair and devours them, one by one. But in her version, Atwood brilliantly recasts the monster as Zenia, a villainess of demonic proportions, and sets her loose in the lives of three friends.

“Moving amid these three women, touching up their portraits with one perfect detail after another, conjuring Zenia from their memories and tears, Atwood is in her glory. What a treasure she is, and what a fine new book she has written.” (Newsweek)

“A provocative version of the war between the sexes; entertaining, imaginative and suspenseful, it finds Atwood in rare form.”
Publishers Weekly
