Product Description

Margaret Atwood is the author of more than forty works, including fiction, poetry and critical essays, and her books have been published in over thirty-five countries. She has won many literary awards and prizes.

By the author of The Handmaid's Tale and Alias Grace

Toby, a survivor of the man-made plague that has swept the earth, is telling stories.

Stories left over from the old world, and stories that will determine a new one.

Listening hard is young Blackbeard, one of the innocent Crakers, the species designed to replace humanity. Their reluctant prophet, Jimmy-the-Snowman, is in a coma, so they've chosen a new hero - Zeb, the street-smart man Toby loves. As clever Pigoons attack their fragile garden and malevolent Painballers scheme, the small band of survivors will need more than stories.

Welcome to the outrageous imagination of Margaret Atwood

'A haunting, restless triumph . . . A writer of virtuoso diversity' Sunday Times

'Wit and dark humour combine with a compassionate tenderness . . . whirling as brilliantly as the bits of glass in a kaleidoscope . . . Atwood the conjuror remains in firm control' Michèle Roberts, Independent

'There are few writers able to create a world so fiercely engaging, so funny, so teeming - ironically - with life. MaddAddam is ultimately a paean to the enduring powers of myth and story, and like the sharpest futuristic visions, it's really all about the here and now' Daily Mail

The final volume in the extraordinary speculative fiction trilogy - a decade in the making - from one of the greatest writers in the English language today.A fierce, learned intelligence . . .

Atwood's prose miraculously balances humor, outrage and beauty . . . This finale to Atwood's ingenious trilogy lights a fire from the fears of our age, then douses it with hope for the planet's survivalThere are few writers able to create a world so fiercely engaging, so funny, so teeming - ironically - with life. MaddAddam is ultimately a paean to the enduring powers of myth and story, and like the sharpest futuristic visions, it's really all about the here and nowThis final volume deploys its author's trademark cool, omniscient satire, but adds to that a real sense of engagement with a fallen world. Atwood has created something reminiscent of Shakespeare's late comedies; her wit and dark humour combine with a compassionate tenderness towards struggling human beings . . . Since almost everything in the world has been broken or has broken down, the novels' form, whirling as brilliantly as the bits of glass in a kaleidoscope, or the pixels in a complex computer game, seems simply to replicate that chaos. However, behind the apparent disorder Atwood the conjuror remains in firm control, juggling her narrative techniques with postmodern gleeA haunting, restless triumph . . . A writer of virtuoso diversity, with an imagination that responds as keenly to scientific concerns as it does to the literary heritage in which she is steeped . . . A dystopia over which Atwood sets swirling a glitterball of different kinds of fictionIt may have been a decade in the making, but it has been well worth the wait . . . Margaret Atwood not only completes one of the most harrowing visions of a near-future dystopia in recent fiction, but lures us even further into new zones of existential terror
