    This collection of short stories has come to represent “comfort” reads to me Many of them feel uite autobiographical and realistic with contemplative notes Included are musings on her? parents her? childhood motherhood and gender roles They seem to have roots sunk deep in the reality of memory and nostalgia There was none of the touch of surrealism I think I’ve detected in some of her other work and yet also no grim reality

review Æ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò Margaret Atwood

Men inflict on each other Here is the familiar outer world of family summers at remote lakes winters of political activism and seasons of exotic friends mudane lives and unexpected loves But here too is the inner world of. There was once a reuest for a day s absence from office that went like this My wife delivered baby As I am the only father I reuest you to declare holiday today This at a moment of insane happiness is what a father wrote to his boss asking for a day off What should ideally have been written as I am now a proud father I would like to take a day off and spend time with my family in this time of happinessThis became something totally different in the hands of another English user didn t it While totally exaggerated and off the mark I somehow found this to be true in the case of Atwood for her usage of the English language is what sets her apart from most writers The prose she employs is way different in elouence and articulation from what another writer might have used in a similar circumstance This book is a collection of short stories which are not uite earth shaking in their content Women who mull over why their marriages are crumbling apart around them a man who tries to reconnect with an old flame and fails at it a teenager who for the thrill of the moment gets herself involved with a guy for whom she barely feels any passion thereafter and so on Looking at them all I can say that it is about human beings trying to figure out what went wrong in the rhythm of their lives Into this humdrum of common place and bland situations Atwood pours the brilliance of her prose The outcome is what would otherwise have been downright boring anecdotes become well crafted stories My favorites from the collection were the stories Hurricane Hazel and Uglypuss which were to me easy to identify with in some way The other good one which I very much felt a connect with was Spring Song of the Frogs but it did not have an ending that left me satisfiedAfter all this praise you might be wondering where the one star vanished to The reason for the 4 star rating was that none of the stories themselves appeared exceptional to me and while the prose was brilliant the content was weak It s like a luke warm thriller with a brilliant set of action seuences and no story to drive it onward
