Good Bones

Margaret Atwood

4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Short stories

Margaret Atwood's classic short stories reissued with a stunning new jacket style along with other titles from her backlist.

These wise and witty writings home in on Shakespeare, tree stumps, ecological disasters, bodies (male and female), and theology, amongst other matters. We hear Gertrude's version of what really happened in Hamlet; an ugly sister and a wicked stepmother put in a good word for themselves,and a reincarnated bat explains how Bram Stoker got Dracula hopelessly wrong. Good Bones is pure distilled Atwood - deliciously strong and bittersweet.
