I think I have a new favourite book! Margaret Atwood has this way of talking about relationships between men and women and women and other women that cuts through the surface and presents a raw image of raw emotions (Margaret Atwood -The Blind Assassin, Margaret Atwood – Life before man, The edible woman – Margaret Atwood,The Handmaid’s Tale (1985) by Margaret Atwood).
This one though, this one.. It was so good that I had to take breather days to be able to process the details correctly. Not since Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects have I been so disturbed by the life of pre-teen girls, the bullying, the meaness, the sorrow of the outcast.
