Margaret Atwood

Bluebeard's Egg: Stories

Paperback (Anchor Jan. 20, 1998) , Reprint Edition
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale

By turns humorous and warm, stark and poignant, the stories in Bluebeard’s Egg probe childhood memories, the reality of parents growing old, and the casual cruelty men and women can inflict on one another. A tenuous teenage love affair fails to survive a hurricane; a man notices the women around him becoming progressively paler and smaller; a surgeon who specializes in hearts seems oddly emotionally opaque to his wife; a middle-aged couple’s waning affection rekindles at the spectacle of rare Jamaican birds. In these exceptional short stories, Margaret Atwood proves herself once again a true master of the form.
