From the Publisher:

"Exploring the paradox of female villainy, this tale of three fascinating women is another peerless display of literary virtuosity by the supremely gifted author of Cat's Eye and The Handmaid's Tale. Roz, Charis and Tony all share a wound, and her name is Zenia. Beautiful, smart and hungry, by turns manipulative and vulnerable, needy and ruthless, Zenia is the tuulent center of her own neverending saga. She entered their lives in the sixties, when they were in college. Over the three decades since, she has damaged each of them badly, ensnaring their sympathy, betraying their trust, and treating their men as loot. Then Zenia dies, or at any rate the three women -- with much relief -- attend her funeral. But as The Robber Bride begins, Roz, Charis and Tony have come together at a trendy restaraunt for their monthly lunch when in walks the seemingly resurrected Zenia...

In this consistently entertaining and profound new novel, Margaret Atwood reports from the farthest reaches of the war between the sexes with her characteristic well-crafted prose, rich and devious humor, and compassion.

"Nobody maps female psychic territory the way Margaret Atwood does... What a treasure she is, and what a fine new book she has written." -- Newsweek

"Deserves every superlative we can muster from hilarious to wise... A genuine tour de force, witty and original, suspenseful and sagacious." -- Booklist

"Irresistable... It may be Atwood's most important book... Postfeminism comes of age with humor and dignity in The Robber Bride " -- Vogue

"A terrific story... Atwood's funniest book in years." -- The New York Times Book Review

From the Back Cover:

"Moving amid these three women, touching up their portraits with one perfect detail after another, conjuring Zenia from their memories and tears, Atwood is in her glory. What a treasure she is, and what a fine new book she has written" (Newsweek).
