Synopsis:
Zenia is beautiful, smart and greedy, by turns manipulative and vulnerable, needy and ruthless; a man's dream and a woman"s nightmare. She is also dead. Just to make sure Tony, Roz andd Charis are there for the funeral. But five years on, as the three women share an indulgent, sisterly lunch, the unthinkable happens; 'with waves of ill will flowing out of her like cosmic radiation', Zenia is back...

Review:
"Virtuoso fullness... vigour and wit...a hugely enjoyable novel."- The Globe and Mail

"Prose burnished with Atwood's characteristic verve, wit and insight."-Salman Rushdie

From the Publisher

Review:
This is the wise, unsettling, drastic story of three women whose lives share a common wound: Zenia, a woman they first met as university students in the sixties. Zenia is smart and beautiful, by turns manipulative, vulnerable ? and irresistible. She has entered into their separate lives to ensnare their sympathy, betray their trust, and exploit their weaknesses. Now Zenia, thought dead, has suddenly reappeared. In this richly layered narrative, Atwood skilfully evokes the decades of the past as she retraces three women?s lives, until we are back in the present ? where it?s yet to be discovered whether Zenia?s ?pure, free-wheeling malevolence? can still wreak havoc. The Robber Bride reports from the farthest reaches of the sex wars and is one of Margaret Atwood?s most intricate and subversive novels yet.
