Synopsis: Life Before Man vividly portrays three people in thrall to the tragicomedy some call love. Imprisoned by walls of their own construction, they are forced to make drastic choices--after the rules have changed and the boundaries have become faded. There is Elizabeth, with her controlled sensuality, who seeks solutions in the wrong men; Nate, wry and gentle husband of Elizabeth, racked by an inability to decide; and Lesje, quiet and inexperienced, who prefers dinosaurs to most men. Hanging over all of them is the ghost of Elizabeth’s dead lover...and the threat of three lives careering inevitably toward potential catastrophe.

From the Publisher: New in this edition: a Reader's Companion to Life Before Man--ideal for discussion groups

"Superb, complete...a splendid, fully integrated work."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Moving flawlessly from wit to pathos and back, Atwood constructs a superb living exhibit in which the artifacts are unique...there is ample treasure in this novel."
--Chicago Tribune

"Crisp, carefully ironic, contemporary...Life Before Man offers us three characters of great complexity and roundness...Atwood has written a novel that is emotionally powerful, intelligent and very adult."
--Ms.

"Atwood writes with savage humor. Sentences are spare, kept under enormous compression, like a bent bow."
--Esquire
