From the Publisher:

"Sheer wizardry, a rich fusion of the ordinary experience made brilliant by symbol, image and allusion."
--Los Angeles Times

From the Inside Flap:

This splendid volume of short fiction testifies to Margaret Atwood's startlingly original voice, full of a rare intensity and exceptional intelligence. Each of the fourteen stories shimmers with feelings, each illuminates the interior landscape of a woman's mind. Here men and women still miscommunicate, still remain separate in different rooms. different houses, or even different worlds. With brilliant flashes of fantasy, humor, and unexpected violence, the stories reveal the complexities of human relationships and bring to life characters who touch us deeply, evoking terror and laughter, compassion and recognition--and dramatically demonstrate why Margaret Atwood is one on the most important writers in English today.
