Publisher Description

The bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale and The Testaments reveals the life of one of the most notorious women of the nineteenth century in this "shadowy, fascinating novel" (Time). • A Netflix original miniseries.

It's 1843, and Grace Marks has been convicted for her involvement in the vicious murders of her employer and his housekeeper and mistress.

Some believe Grace is innocent; others think her evil or insane. Now serving a life sentence, Grace claims to have no memory of the murders. An up-and-coming expert in the burgeoning field of mental illness is engaged by a group of reformers and spiritualists who seek a pardon for Grace. He listens to her story while bringing her closer and closer to the day she cannot remember. What will he find in attempting to unlock her memories?

Captivating and disturbing, Alias Grace showcases bestselling, Booker Prize-winning author Margaret Atwood at the peak of her powers.

Atwood's Version of a Historical Crime Mystery

There are plenty of delicious details in this novel of moral ambiguities. The historical facts are accurate in the framework of the story. Canada wasn't a country at the time of the crime, just a collection of political ideas. As the story unfolds, we have a correlation of criminal and political evolution, although not always for the better. The stinger at the end is that we still don't know if Alias is guilty or innocent. If you want a clear cut ending, this isn't your book.
