Discover this sharp, funny short story collection from the bestselling author of the handmaid’s tale and the testaments a man finds himself surrounded by women who are becoming paler, more silent and literally smaller; a woman's intimate life is strangely dominated by the fear of nuclear warfare; a melancholy teenage love is swept away by a Hurricane, while a tired, middle-aged affection is rekindled by the spectacle of rare Jamaican birds. In these exceptional short stories, by turns funny and searingly honest, Margaret Atwood captures brilliantly the complex forces that govern our relationships and the powerful emotions that guide them. ‘An acute and poetic observer of the eternal, universal, rum relationships between men and women’ the times.
