About this title

Synopsis:

In this acclaimed collection of twelve stories, Margaret Atwood probes the territory of childhood memories and the casual cruelty men and women inflict upon each other and themselves. She looks behind the familiar world of family summers at remote lakes, ordinary lives, and unexpected loves, and she unearths profound truths. A melancholy, teenage love is swept away by a Canadian hurricane, while a tired, middle-aged affection is rekindled by the spectacle of rare Jamaican birds; a potter tries to come to terms with the group of poets who so smother her that she is driven into the arms of her accountant; and, in the title story, the Bluebeard legend is retold as an ironic tale of marital deception. Stark and scathing at times, humorous and compassionate at others, "Bluebeard"'"s Egg" confirms once again Atwood's reputation as the pre-eminent chronicler of our times.

Product Description:

With "Bluebeard's Egg", Atwood covers a dramatic range of storytelling, her scope encompassing the many moods of her characters, from desolate to hilarious. By turns humorous and warm, stark and frightening, "Bluebeard's Egg" explores and illuminates both the outer world in which we all live and the inner world that each of us creates.
