Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A rich, subtle, deep, delicate, nourishing book. It's all joy, but it stays with you. She has things to tell us". — The Philadelphia Inquirer

Joan Foster is the bored wife of a myopic ban-the-bomber. She takes off overnight as Canada's new superpoet, pens lurid gothics on the sly, attracts a blackmailing reporter, skids cheerfully in and out of menacing plots, hair-raising traps, passionate trysts, and lands dead and well in Terremoto, Italy. In this remarkable, poetic, and magical novel, Margaret Atwood proves yet again why she is considered to be one of the most important and accomplished writers of our time.

"A wonderfully unpretentious comic romp...a fine novel: inventive...funny, and a pleasure to read. — Mordechai Richler

"A very funny novel, lightly told with wry detachment and considerable art". — the Washington Post Book World

"Funny, poignant, and briskly energetic". — Newsweek

amerikiwi, June 25, 2014 (view all comments by amerikiwi)
in this novel, Atwood explores her early feminism while satirizing the radical politics of the 1970's. with subtle detail and gentle humour, she has drawn an engaging picture of an intelligent woman's awareness of her own place in a 'man's world' while she tries to stay true to herself. She exposes men's self-absorption and their drives for power at the expense of their relationships as one of the benefits of the women's movement to society.
