Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!
In this one, Margaret Atwood deals with elderly topics of concern, such as assisted living, funerals, and falling.
The first three stories were my favorite and served as a kind of trilogy, if you will. They are about the aging author of a fantasy series named Constance, and her early love affair with a poet named Gavin. The writings are spot on, mildly satirical, and gently skew both writers' internal and external perceptions of themselves and each other.
To be honest, some of the stories in this book succeed more than others, but I felt it was worth the read, if you're a fan of Atwood's and enjoy short stories.
