Product Details


“The first great novel of the new millennium.” —Newsday

“Absorbing… expertly rendered… Virtuosic storytelling [is] on display.” —The New York Times

“Brilliant… Opulent… Atwood is a poet…. as well as a contriver of fiction, and scarcely a sentence of her quick, dry yet avid prose fails to do useful work, adding to a picture that becomes enormous.” —John Updike, The New Yorker

“Chilling… Lyrical… [Atwood’s] most ambitious work to date.” —The Boston Globe

“Hauntingly powerful…. A novel of luminous prose, scalpel-precise insights and fierce characters… Atwood’s new work is so assured, so elegant and so incandescently intelligent, she casts her contemporaries in the shade.” —The Atlanta Journal–Constitution

“Grand storytelling on a grand scale… Sheerly enjoyable.” —The Washington Post Book World

“Bewitching… A killer novel…. Atwood’s crisp wit and steely realism are reminiscent of Edith Wharton… A wonderfully complex narrative.” —The Christian Science Monitor

“A tour de force.” —Chicago Tribune
