Publisher Description

An original and compelling work in which Margaret Atwood passes one woman’s bizarre life through the prism of her unique literary vision. The shy, awkward wife of a perpetual radical, Joan Foster is a formerly obese woman whose delicate equilibrium is threatened by the fact that the several lives she has lived separately and secretly are coming together and will be exposed. She is newly and notoriously famous as a bestselling author; she writes gothic novels under a nom de plume; she is having a hidden affair. Love, fear, understanding, suspense, sensuality, and humour – there is hardly an emotional current that is not touched in Lady Oracle, and with a depth, vitality, and wit that are rare in any time.

Lady Oracle

How could you not love a book like this? It was written with wit, intelligence and had a certain mystery woven through it. Joan Foster, the heroine, seems to have more than her fair share of troubles and bad breaks throughout this wonderful work, and I was truly amazed at the depths Ms. Atwood took me through to relate this (often hilarious) tale. I am going to make an effort to read all of her books! Superb!
