This was strange, very uncomfortable at times, but overall a fascinating read. Dystopian fiction at it's best! #catsoflitsy #justfinished #atwood #fiction #dystopian

1. A Lost Lady (Cather) Dancing Girls (Atwood)
2. “Instead she is lucky, suddenly, finally, she‘s overflowing with luck, it‘s this luck holding her up.”
3. Coffee, Diet Pepsi, and now wine.

In someone else‘s hands this would have been a cliché - woman who writes about fashion and trends goes to Caribbean island to deal with mental issues due to breast cancer/surgery and gets swept up in a banana republic revolution. But in Atwood‘s capable hands, it‘s philosophical and real and symbolic, all at the same time. Pre- Handmaid, but dealing with many of the same issues of power and identity.

DrexEdit I had similar thoughts about her book An Edible Woman. Almost any other author would not have been able to make the story so relevant. 1mo

“If you were a girl it was a lot safer to be decent than to be beautiful. If you were a boy, the question didn‘t arise; the choice was whether or not you were a fool.”

#bookandbeverage Getting ready to meet the lady herself in 7 days! (but who‘s counting?) #gratefulreads @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

merelybookish Oh, that's exciting! I saw her years and years ago (for Alias Grace) and she was stormed by a Canadian comedy troop. She handled it well. 1mo
OriginalCyn620 That‘s awesome! 1mo

vivastory @merelybookish Seriously?! How strange! Please tell me it wasn't Kids in the Hall. 1mo
merelybookish @vivastory No, but that would have been amazing! It's a show called This Hour has 22 Minutes and it was a fake news show. They had a woman who played a pushy ignorant correspondent. 1mo

I was confused and not quite understand the story at times. Well written but not a good read for me. Surprised it‘s Atwood‘s first novel, written in 1969! The plots here are way ahead of time! She definitely can see the future!

Me and the Ginge are really enjoying this so far. With speculative fiction I've always loved the slow unraveling of a backstory, which Atwood delivers 😻 #atwood #cats #catsoflitsy #covercrush #scifi #hardback #currentlyreading

Another beautiful cover. This book was gifted to me by a good friend last week and I'm a little bit in love #covercrush #scifi #green #atwood #postapocalyptic

Wow... didn‘t realise Edible Woman was 50 years old this year...Her books always feel so relevant.

LeeRHarry This one was my first Atwood given to me by my best uni friend 😊 there are parts of it I still remember vividly. 3mo
Blaire I remember reading this one in college - it made an impression on me and turned me into an Atwood fan. 3mo
Mitch @LeeRHarry @blaire I read her books in all the wrong order. I feel know I‘d like to re read and see the evolution! 3mo
