From the #1New York Timesbestselling author ofThe Handmaid's Tale
A delightful mlange of short fiction, here the Booker Prize-winning author pushes against form once again, with meditations on warlords, pet heaven, and aging homemakers. In these pieces, Margaret Atwood gives a sly pep talk to the ambitious young; writes about the disconcerting experience of looking at old photos of ourselves; and examines the boons and banes of orphanhood. Accompanied by her own playful illustrations, Atwoods droll humor and keen insight make each piece full of clarity and grace. Prescient and personal, delectable and tart,The Tentreflects one of our wittiest authors at her best.
