From the Publisher:

New in this edition: a Reader's Companion to Bodily Harm--ideal for discussion groups

"This is a story about one of today's women...Bodily Harm is strong stuff, and the writing is nearly flawless."
--People

"It knocked me out. Margaret Atwood seems to be able to do just about everything: people, places, problems, a perfect ear, an exactly right voice."
--Anatole Broyard, The New York Times

"Romance and adventure by a female Graham Greene at his peak."
--Marilyn French, author of The Women's Room

"Superior writing, terrifying suspense."
--The Atlantic Monthly

"Secures her place in the upper ranks of important novelists."
--Cosmopolitan

From the Inside Flap:

A powerful and brilliantly crafted new novel from the author of Surfacing, Life Before Man, The Edible Woman, and Lady Oracle. Bodily Harm is the story of Rennie Wilford, a young journalist whose life has begun to shatter around the edges. Rennie Wilford flies to the Caribbean to recuperate, and on the tiny island of St. Antoine, she is confronted by a world where her rules for survival no longer apply. By turns comic, satiric, relentless, and terrifying, Margaret Atwood's new novel is ultimately an exploration of the lust for power both sexual and political, and the need for compassion that goes beyond what we ordinarily mean by love.
