About this title

Synopsis:

By turns humorous and warm, stark and frightening, Bluebeard's Egg infuses a Canada of the 1940s, '50s and '80s with glowing childhood memories, the harsh realities of parents growing old, and the casual cruelty that men and women inflict on each other.  Here is the familiar outer world of family summers at remote lakes, winters of political activism, and seasons of exotic friends, mudane lives and unexpected loves.  But here too is the inner world of hidden places and all that emerges from them--the intimately personal, the fantastic and the shockingly real...whether it's what lies in a mysterious locked room or in the secret feelings we all conceal.
From the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher:

"A champion of Canadian literature...A startlingly original voice."
--Washington Post Book World

"Atwood appears to challenge both her readers and the outside limits of her own talent...Writing at top form, writing with total control of her material, with sureness, with touches of brilliance...Bluebeard's Egg is a book to be read and re-read, to be talked about and savored."
--London (Ontario) Free Press

"Margaret Atwood conceals the kick of a perfum bottle converted into a Molotov cocktail."
--Melvin Maddocks

"Atwood's prose in Bluebeard's Egg is powerful, elegant and mellifluous to an extraordinary degree."
--Quill and Quire
