These wise and witty writings home in on Shakespeare, tree stumps, ecological disasters, bodies (male and female), and theology, amongst other matters. We hear Gertrude's version of what really happened in Hamlet; an ugly sister and a wicked stepmother put in a good word for themselves,and a reincarnated bat explains how Bram Stoker got Dracula hopelessly wrong. Good Bones is pure distilled Atwood - deliciously strong and bittersweet.
A marvellous miniature sample case of Atwood's sensuous and sardonic talents TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT Savagely hilarous THE LIST Her wit and humour are perfectly complemented by a penetrating eye for the false and absurd THE SUNDAY TIMES Full of fun and invention, with an edge that cuts through entertaining sampler of Atwood's cleverness and imagination NICOLETTE JONES, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
