Product Details

Praise

“Eclectic, funny, vibrant, terrifying, beautiful, and utterly delightful.” —The Boston Globe

“A tour de force of wit, style, and discernment.” —O, The Oprah Magazine

“Astonishing. . . . Powerful. . . . I loved these strange, sharp and wild stories.” —Meg Wolitzer, NPR

“Pure, simple and stunning. . . . Endearing, subtle, quite brilliant.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Powerful. . . . Witty and frequently biting, Stone Mattress is keen to the ways in which we choose, all our lives, to love and to hurt—and in Atwood’s world these two actions are always choices, creating consequences for which we will one day be held to account.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Danc[es] over the dark swamps of Horror on the wings of satirical wit. . . .  Look at these tales . . .  as eight icily refreshing arsenic Popsicles followed by a baked Alaska laced with anthrax, all served with impeccable style and aplomb. Enjoy!” —Ursula K. Le Guin, Financial Times

“The collection is surprisingly unsettling, gripping and at once laugh-out-loud hilarious. It attains its laudable goal: Myths last over time, and the stories in this book have that very quality. They are timeless, memorable and quite simply fun.” —Chicago Tribune

“Powerful. . . . Extraordinary. . . . Realism and ridiculousness, play and deadly seriousness, are held in fine balance throughout.” —The Guardian (London)
