Review quote

Not since Graham Greene or William Golding has a novelist captured so forcefully the relationship between school bully and victim...Atwood's power games are played, exquisitely, by little girls LISTENER Irrestistible...This book is about life for all of us. She is one of our finest novelists. Read it THE TIMES Atwood's taut and exquisite use of language makes all her books irresistable... THE WEEK Margaret Atwood charts the psychological process of memory as compulsion and memory as a healing act through the character of Elaine Risley, an artist who returns to her home town of Toronto for a retrospective of her work. Elaine's visit triggers though - Chris Kellett, From 500 Great Books by Women, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW
