The Tent
by Margaret Atwood




Overview -

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale

In this delightful m lange of short fiction, Margaret Atwood pushes the boundaries of form in intriguing directions. Alongside meditations on warlords, cat heaven, and orphans, she offers a sly pep talk to the ambitious young, laments the proliferation of photos of oneself, imagines an apocalypse of worms, and recalls Helen of Troy's childhood Kool-Aid stand. In the title fable, a writer huddled inside a tent of paper engages in doodling as self-defense, scribbling on the walls in a frantic attempt to keep out encroaching horrors. Adorned with her own playful illustrations, The Tent is replete with Atwood's droll humor, keen insight, and lyric brilliance.
