Product Overview

"Margaret Atwood Presents" features stories by Annable Lyon, Caroline Adderson, Nancy Lee, Elise Levine, Lisa Moore, Kristi-Ly Green and Sheila Heti. Brilliant, daring, funny, and frequently these writers pull no punches when it comes to depicting society as they see it. In "Sally, In Parts," Nancy Lee explores a young woman's unusual relationship with her body. In "Cancer," Kristi-Ly descibes a primary school class's ambivalent responses towards a poor little rich girl. Lisa brings a haunting, sensuous intensity to a tale of love in "Haloes, while Sheila upends traditional forms in the sharp urban parable "The Princess and the Plumber."
