Wilderness Tips

book | 4 | 1991
UK → Bloomsbury Publishing
Canada → McClelland & Stewart Inc

An award-winning collection of ten stories that charts the complexities of modern life and explores the strange and secret places of the heart.

The gruesome discoveries of an archaeological dig in Britain find parallels in a contemporary love affair; a girl disappears without a trace and returns to haunt a collection of landscape paintings; a nineteenth-century case of mass-poisoning on the famous Franklin Expedition stirs memories of a dead friend; a woman exacts a fittingly wicked revenge on her ex-lover; a well-known journalist is betrayed by a former mentor and friend.

Brilliantly rendered, disturbing, poignant at times, scathingly humorous at others, Wilderness Tips imbues the familiar world in which we live with indelible truths.

Reviews

Atwood... deserves an adjective - Atwoodian - in recognition of her unmistakeable style.
Chicago Tribune

Everything she forms in words has substance and weight
The Telegraph

Atwood is a writer of importance, with a deep understanding of human behaviour, a beautiful understated style and, rarest of all, a broad scope Marilyn French

Funny, sharp and always incisive
