Synopsis: Joan Foster is the bored wife of a myopic ban-the-bomber. She takes off overnight as Canada's new superpoet, pens lurid gothics on the sly, attracts a blackmailing reporter, skids cheerfully in and out of menacing plots, hair-raising traps, and passionate trysts, and lands dead and well in Terremoto, Italy. In this remarkable, poetic, and magical novel, Margaret Atwood proves yet again why she is considered to be one of the most important and accomplished writers of our time.
From the Publisher: New in this edition: a Reader's Companion to Lady Oracle--ideal for discussion groups
"Funny, poignant, and briskly energetic."
"A rich, subtle, deep, delicate, nourishing book. It's all joy, but it stays with you. She has things to tell us."
"A really gifted writer...alternately satirical and lyrical."
"A very funny novel, lightly told with wry detachment and considerable art."
--Washington Post Book World
"Brilliant and funny. I can't tell you how exhilarating it was to read it --everything works. An extraordinary book."
