One of the world’s most celebrated authors, Margaret Atwood has penned a collection of smart and entertaining fictional essays, in the genre of her popular books Good Bones and Murder in the Dark, punctuated with wonderful illustrations by the author.

Chilling and witty, prescient and personal, delectable and tart, these highly imaginative, vintage Atwoodian essays speak on a broad range of subjects, reflecting the times we live in with deadly accuracy and knife-edge precision.

The Tent feels very full, very intimate, with everything to hand and nothing redundant... Atwood’s sentences have more bounce and boogie than those of most twentysomethings. Toby Litt

The precision and concision she has honed over half a century’s devotion to that craft — getting maximum effect from the minimal — ensure that these terse pieces can speak volumes. Peter Kemp

Bracing, inventive and bristling with ideas, The Tent offers a fascinating glimpse into a writer’s mind. Christina Koning

Atwood's touch is gloriously transformational... Her wit is quicksilver, simultaneously succinct and elusive. Caroline Moore
