9780747510192: Wilderness Tips

This is a collection of short stories from the author of "Cat's Eye" and "The Handmaid's Tale". The settings range from late-1950s coffee bars where poetry readings are subversive, to wild Canadian landscapes that are both menacing and alluring.

From the Publisher:

"Dazzling."
--The New York Times

"Atwood's writing is assured, her focus clear and her humor ample."
--People

"Atwood's voice, honed after years of writing such books as Lady Oracle and The Handmaid's Tale, is sharper than ever, but still funny...it whispers that the wilderness is right here, right now."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Each of the stories in Wilderness Tips is a gem, a glittering piece to which one is drawn again and again. To read them is to enter a startling world: strange and too close for comfort."
--Denver Post

From the Back Cover:

“Each of the stories in Wilderness Tips is a gem, a glittering piece to which one is drawn again and again.”
The Denver Post

“A solace in the midst of life’s losses and confusions–reason enough to celebrate once again Margaret Atwood’s singular gifts.”
Maclean’s

Wilderness Tips is vintage stuff: the author is at her satiric, terse, biting and disturbing best in these ten stories.”
Edmonton Journal

“This is masterful writing.”
Globe and Mail

“Atwood is as audacious as ever.…There is something irresistible about this combination of mordant humour and unswerving truth.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“[Atwood possesses] a truly remarkable array of powers.…The wilderness of Wilderness Tips is the one we all live in–whether or not we admit it.”
Books in Canada

“These are stories that speak to all who do not close their ears, and their minds, to the late twentieth-century reality.”
StarPhoenix (Saskatoon)

“Virtuoso wit and unmistakable style.…Atwood the poet is alive in these stories.”
Chicago Tribune.

“The reader has the sense that Atwood has complete access to her people’s emotional histories, complete understanding of their hearts and imagination.”
Publishers Weekly

“[Atwood has the] ability to place her finger firmly on the pulse of what is contemporary.”
Hamilton Spectator

Wilderness Tips is a grimly comic, often scathing natural history of urban anxiety and middle age.”
London Free Press

“Almost every one of the ten stories in this collection superimposes the past upon the present in an unsettling, often startling manner, which conjures up a sense of the mysterious, in even the most banal relationships.”
New York Times Book Review
