A leathery bog-man transforms an old love affair; a sweet, gruesome gift is sent by the wife of an ex-lover; landscape paintings are haunted by the ghost of a young girl. This dazzling collection of ten short stories takes us into familiar Atwood territory to reveal the logic of irrational behaviour and the many textures lying beneath ordinay life.

From the Publisher:

--The New York Times

"Atwood's voice, honed after writing such books as Lady Oracle and The Handmaid's Tale, is sharper than ever, but still funny...It whispers that the wilderness is right here, right now."
--San Francisco Chronicle

From the Back Cover:

“Each of the stories in Wilderness Tips is a gem, a glittering piece to which one is drawn again and again.”
The Denver Post

“A solace in the midst of life’s losses and confusions–reason enough to celebrate once again Margaret Atwood’s singular gifts.”

Wilderness Tips is vintage stuff: the author is at her satiric, terse, biting and disturbing best in these ten stories.”
Edmonton Journal

“This is masterful writing.”
Globe and Mail

“Atwood is as audacious as ever.…There is something irresistible about this combination of mordant humour and unswerving truth.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“[Atwood possesses] a truly remarkable array of powers.…The wilderness of Wilderness Tips is the one we all live in–whether or not we admit it.”
Books in Canada

“These are stories that speak to all who do not close their ears, and their minds, to the late twentieth-century reality.”
StarPhoenix (Saskatoon)

“Virtuoso wit and unmistakable style.…Atwood the poet is alive in these stories.”
Chicago Tribune.

“The reader has the sense that Atwood has complete access to her people’s emotional histories, complete understanding of their hearts and imagination.”
Publishers Weekly

“[Atwood has the] ability to place her finger firmly on the pulse of what is contemporary.”
Hamilton Spectator

Wilderness Tips is a grimly comic, often scathing natural history of urban anxiety and middle age.”
London Free Press

“Almost every one of the ten stories in this collection superimposes the past upon the present in an unsettling, often startling manner, which conjures up a sense of the mysterious, in even the most banal relationships.”
New York Times Book Review
