Overview

Good Bones and Simple Murders / Edition 1

In this compilation of short works that defy easy categorization, Margaret Atwood displays the trademark wit and virtuosity of her bestselling novels, brilliant stories, and insightful poetry. Among the miniatures gathered here are Gertrude offering Hamlet a piece of her mind, the real truth about the Little Red Hen, a reincarnated bat explaining how Bram Stoker got Dracula all wrong, and the five home-economist methods of making a man. There are parables, monologues, prose poems, condensed science fictions, reconfigured fairy tales, and other diminutive masterpieces -- punctuated with charming illustrations by the author.
