The new novels promise an intriguing opportunity to revisit the tales we know so well and see them in a new light. The Culture Trip
A delight... not only an unputdownable tale of revenge, it is also a masterclass in how to teach Shakespeare to those who think they won't like it -- Alice O'Keefe Bookseller Atwood's canny remix offers multiple pleasures: seeing the inmates' takes on their characters, watching Felix make use of the limited resources the prison affords (legal and less so), and marveling at the ways she changes, updates, and parallels the play's magic, grief, vengeance, and showmanship Publishers Weekly So inventive, heartfelt, and swiftly rendered... Highly recommended. Library Journal The new novels promise an intriguing opportunity to revisit the tales we know so well and see them in a new light. The Culture Trip Atwood joins the roll call of literary stars retelling Shakespeare's plays... masterful... My favourite retelling so far Bookseller
Margaret Atwood is the author of more than forty books of fiction, poetry and critical essays including The Handmaid's Tale, the Booker-winning The Blind Assassin, the MaddAddam trilogy and her latest novel, The Heart Goes Last. Her work has received many awards around the world. She has also worked as a cartoonist, illustrator, librettist, playwright and puppeteer. Her first encounters with Shakespeare took place in the 1950s at her Toronto high school, and she has consistently named him as one of the most important influences on her own work. 'The Tempest is, in some ways, an early multi-media musical. If Shakespeare were working today he'd be using every special effect technology now makes available. But The Tempest is especially intriguing because of the many questions it leaves unanswered. What a strenuous pleasure it has been to wrestle with it!'
