A fantastic and clever read (as one would expect), but also on the lighter side compared to what she normally writes, which I think is probably a consequence of being part of this "Hogarth Shakespeare" series. In it Atwood takes on The Tempest, wherein an eccentric Shakespearean director & actor, grief stricken by the death of his 3 year old daughter Miranda, is ousted from his position as the director of a small town Shakespeare festival on the verge of staging The Tempest. Years later, though, he has the opportunity to perform it with a band of white collar felons as part of a prison literacy program, and mmmmmm things get a bit crazy after that. Amusing and smart, but not as weighty as many of her books.
