The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop

Old babes in the wood

Margaret Atwood is celebrated as one of the most gifted storytellers in the world. This new collection showcases her many talents – and the return of her beloved characters Nell and Tig. They explore the full warp and weft of experience, from two best friends disagreeing about their shared past, to the right way to stop someone from choking; from a daughter determining if her mother really is a witch, to what to do with inherited relics such as World War II parade swords. At the heart of the collection is a stunning sequence that follows a married couple as they travel the road together, the moments big and small that make up a long life of love – and what comes after. The glorious range of Atwood’s creativity and humanity is on full beam in these tales, which by turns delight, illuminate and quietly devastate.
