Author(s): Margaret Atwood
Atwood entices us to flip through the photo album of a Canadian woman who closely resembles herself. Come here, sit beside me, she seems to say. Then she takes us on an emotional journey through loneliness, love, loss and old age' Sarah Emily Miano, THE TIMES Short stories that trace the course of a life, and the lives intertwined with it - MORAL DISORDER is Margaret Atwood at her very finest. 'Funny, touching, beady-eyed, slouchily elegant, giving us family life in all its horrors. The secret resentments and alignments - difficult siblings, unfair parents, hopeless yearnings and rage - are funny to read about, hellish to experience. Atwood makes it look so easy, doing what she does best: tenderly dissecting the human heart ...A marvellous writer' Lee Langley, DAILY MAIL 'A model of distillation, precision, clarity and detail ...Atwood writes with compassion and intensity not only about her characters but also about the 20th century itself' Mary Flanagan, INDEPENDENT 'MORAL DISORDER is an infinitely ingenious and perceptive study, as intimate as a self-portrait but with an epic breadth of vision. It deserves to become a quiet classic' Charlotte Moore, SPECTATOR
