NZ Review 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
