Bluebeard’s Egg

Paperback

Overview

In Atwood s second short story collection she covers a dramatic range, from the desolate to the hilarious. The stories concern themselves with relationships of various sorts. Among them are the bonds between a political activist and his kidnapped cat, a woman and her dead psychiatrist, a potter and a group of poets who live with her, and an artist and the men who are her models. By turns humorous and warm, stark and frightening, “Bluebeard’s Egg” explores the world in which we live –and the one we create.

Reviews
"A book to be read and re-read, to be talked about and savored. . . . Atwood [is] writing at top form, writing with total control of her material, with sureness, with touches of brilliance." –The London Free Press

"This collection . . . attests, again, to Ms. Atwood's range as a writer, her ability to set forth her view of the world . . . in both lyrical, meditative tales and wry, crackly satires. . . . These stories are strewn, like a starry sky, with shimmering images and bright metaphors." –The New York Times

"A startlingly original voice." –Washington Post Book World

"Atwood's prose in Bluebeard's Egg is powerful, elegant and mellifluous to an extraordinary degree." –Quill and Quire
