"The first time these writingsd have been available in a single volume, 'Good Bones and Simple Murders' is Margaret Atwood ather offbeat, exquisite best.

There are parables, monologues, prose poems, condensed science fictions, reconfigured fairy tales, and other diminutive masterpieces -- punctuated with charming illustrations by the author." - from the dustjacket.

Spadoni and Donnelly 3587. "'TheHandmaid's Tale' is a radical departure for Margaret Atwood. Set in the ne ar future, in a locale that oddly resembles Cambridge, Massachusetts, it describes the life in what was once the United States. Now, however, it has become the Republic of Gilead, a monolithic theocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans, and has gone far beyond them. This regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for women, and for men as well. The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate 'Handmaids' under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishment's calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions." - from the dustjacket.

ATWOOD, Margaret. The Robber Bride. A novel. (Toronto) : McClelland & Stewart, (1993). First Printing. Pp. (12),3-546,(4). 8vo, green cloth, copper lettering to spine. "'The Robber Bride', set mainly in Toronto in the presentday, is the wise, unsettling, drastic story of three women -- Roz, Charis, and Tony -- whose lives share a common wound: Zenia, a woman they first me t as university students in the sixties. Zenia is smart and beautiful, by turns manipulative and vulnerable, the turbulent centre of her own never-ending drama. She has at various points entered into their separate lives to ensnare their sympathy, betray their trust, and exploit their weaknesses. But she's irresistible, and, as Tony says, people like Zenia can never step through your doorway unless you invite them. Now Zenia, thought dead, has suddenly reappeared -- in a restaurant where the three are sharing a decorouslunch. In this richly layered, narrative, Atwood skilfully evokes the deca des of the past as she reveals the dark, sometimes chilling, aspects of hercharacters' childhoods. She retraces their lives, including their catastro phic encounters with Zenia, until we are back in the present -- where it's yet to be discovered whether Zenia's 'pure, free-wheeling malevolence' can still wreak havoc." - from the dustjacket.
