it was ok
bookshelves: tragedy, sociopolitical

Jesus. Atwood's a fine writer, but in this collection of short stories, every lead character is in deep emotional pain, and when descriptive prose like Atwood's is brought to bear on lives like that, the results are excruciating.

These stories are almost pornographies of despair.

Lamepun "These stories are almost pornographies of despair."

That's exactly it, and what makes it so unbearable to read.
