By Margaret AtwoodA powerfully and brilliantly crafted novel, Bodily Harm is the tale of Rennie Wilford, a tender journalist whose existence has started to shatter round the edges. Rennie flies to the Caribbean to recover, and at the tiny island of St. Antoine she is faced via an international the place her principles for survival not apply. By turns comedian, satiric, relentless, and terrifying, Margaret Atwood's Bodily Harm is eventually an exploration of the lust for energy, either sexual and political, and the necessity for compassion that is going past what we generally suggest by means of love.
Margaret Atwood is the writer of over twenty-five books, together with fiction, poetry, and essays. Among her most modern works are the bestselling novels Alias Grace and The Robber Bride and the collections Wilderness Tips and Good Bones and straightforward Murders. She lives in Toronto.
