The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
The Blind Assassin

Kathryn Lopresti, January 1, 2010

An older woman recounts the life and times of her once prosperous family while she explains the story behind her sister's death. Atwood's story has everything: bits of sci-fi, mystery, history, love story. While the narrator tells her story, she lists her regrets, but the story is ultimately hopeful and beautifully told.
