A nice compilation of essays on Atwood's work. I paid the most attention to the sections on her novels (because that is most relevant to my paper), but the other sections were also interesting. I liked the last section of the book the best, but that may be due to personal preference and relative level of familiarity with the works under discussion. A good resource.
New insight into Atwood's books. I enjoyed much of it, but found the chapter about humor to be rather dry, filled with jargon, and (ironically) humorless. Good reading if you love Atwood's books.
