A new collection of dazzling short fiction from Booker winning author Margaret Atwood. These super-short little 'fictional essays' are as fantastically well-written as you would expect from a literary giant such as Atwood. Each one is like a poem in prose, challenging yet extremely rewarding. The essays are interspersed with illustrations drawn by Atwood herself.

If you like Margaret Atwood you might also like to read books by Iain Banks, Susanna Clarke and J G Ballard.

Synopsis

The Tent by Margaret Atwood

One of the worldâs most celebrated authors, Margaret Atwood has penned a collection of smart and entertaining fictional essays, in the genre of her popular books Good Bones and Murder in the Dark, punctuated with wonderful illustrations by the author.

Chilling and witty, prescient and personal, delectable and tart, these highly imaginative, vintage Atwoodian essays speak on a broad range of subjects, reflecting the times we live in with deadly accuracy and knife-edge precision.
