One of the world's most celebrated authors, Margaret Atwood has penned a collection of smart and entertaining fictional essays, in the genre of her popular books "Good Bones" and "Murder in the Dark", punctuated with wonderful illustrations by the author. Chilling and witty, prescient and personal, delectable and tart, these highly imaginative, vintage Atwoodian essays speak on a broad range of subjects, reflecting the times we live in with deadly accuracy and knife-edge precision.

Booklist 'She never fails to entertain' Sunday Times 'Atwood is one of the most inventive, enthralling and accomplished authors writing in English' Sunday Times
