Description

The sun brightens in the east, reddening the blue-grey haze that marks the distant ocean. The vultures roosting on the hydro poles fan out their wings to dry them. the air smells faintly of burning. The waterless flood - a manmade plague - has ended the world.But two young women have survived: Ren, a young dancer trapped where she worked, in an upmarket sex club (the cleanest dirty girls in town); and Toby, who watches and waits from her rooftop garden. Is anyone else out there?show more

Review quote

Prescient and inventive * Tracy-Ann Oberman * ** 'Margaret Atwood has outdone - and outsung - herself this time. The Year of the Flood is at once a solemn praise song to human hope and a dead-serious poke at our capacity for self-destruction . . . Shows Atwood at the pinnacle of her prodigious creative power s' Elle * ** `A sharp observer of the female psyche . . . Atwood's richly fertile imagination plays to exuberant and often comic effect' * ** 'Atwood knows how to show us ourselves, but the mirror she holds up to life does more than reflect . . . The Year of the Flood isn't prophecy, but it is eerily possible * Jeanette Winterson * Caroline Moore, Daily Telegraph * ** `A gripping and visceral book that showcases her pure storytelling talents with energy, inventiveness and narrative panache' * ** 'A tour de force . . . as pacy as a thriller . . . laced with Atwood's dry wit, and her savage, credible invention * Erica Wagner, The Times *show more
