A treasure trove of collected works from the legendary author of The Handmaid’s Tale and Alias Grace

Queen Gertrude gives Hamlet a piece of her mind.
An ugly sister and a wicked stepmother put in a good word for themselves.
A reincarnated bat explains how Bram Stoker got Dracula hopelessly wrong.

Bones and Murder is a bewitching cocktail of prose and poetry, fiction and fairytales, as well as some of Atwood’s own illustrations. It’s pure distilled Atwood: deliciously strong and bittersweet.

Savagely hilarous
THE LIST
Her wit and humour are perfectly complemented by a penetrating eye for the false and absurd
