By the author of The Handmaid's Tale

Now a major NETFLIX series

Sometimes I whisper it over to myself: Murderess. Murderess. It rustles, like a taffeta skirt along the floor.

Grace Marks. Female fiend? Femme fatale? Or weak and unwilling victim?

Around the true story of one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of the 1840s, Margaret Atwood has created an extraordinarily potent tale of sexuality, cruelty and mystery.

Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading writers, Margaret Atwood is an author, essayist, poet and activist whose inventive and diverse literary output ranges widely and deeply from feminist classics such as The Handmaid’s Tale and The Edible Woman to complex blends of science fiction and magic realism such as her Booker Prize winning novel The Blind Assassin and chilling dystopian visions including her Oryx and Crake sequence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A sensuous, perplexing book, at once sinister and dignified, grubby and gorgeous, panoramic yet specific...I don't think I have ever been so thrilled...This, surely is as far as a novel can go -- Julie Myerson * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
Brilliant...Atwood's prose is searching. So intimate it seems to be written on the skin -- Hilary Mantel
Margaret Atwood is to be congratulated -- Anita Brookner * SPECTATOR *
The outstanding novelist of our age -- Peter Kemp * SUNDAY TIMES *
