Moral Disorder by Margaret Atwood

Moral Disorder and other stories, by Margaret Atwood. The newest Atwood. Of course I gulped it down, barely pausing to chew the plot, dissect the changing POVs, eager to grab onto more of her work. And this is chewy, in the best sense of the word. This has the heady, dense, satisfying taste of autobiography disguised as fiction. Let's see, there is the biologist father, the distant mother, the wilderness setting. Yup, all check out. But most of all, this is prime Atwood, at her best, on her worst behaviour. I mean, what's not to love about a writer who leads the reader gently into the forest of trouble.
