    The Tent by Margaret Atwood, which helps to fulfill my Project A

    The Tent by Margaret Atwood, which helps to fulfill my Project Atwood requirement.  The Tent is a short book filled with super short stories (2 pages usually, sometimes less).  I have to say I have mixed feelings on these.  The book is split up into 3 sections, and I enjoyed the second section the best.  The first section I just didn't understand.  

    But I did enjoy some of the satirical quotes from the stories.  Here are some of my favorites: 

    "No more photos.  Surely there are enough.  No more shadows of myself thrown by light onto pieces of paper, onto squares of plastic." - p. 25 

    "You're not my real parents, every child has thought. I'm not your real child.  But with orphans, it's true.  What freedom, to thumb your nose authentically!" - p. 29

    "What are we do to?  The child sex trade is not for us: our children are unattractive and rude, and - due to the knowledge of our history - have a bad habit of mugging prospective customers and shoving them over cliffs." - p. 60

    The Tent is super short and a very quick read, so if you're a huge Atwood fan, check it out.  Some of the stories were great, some were bizarre.
