Margaret Atwood is the author of more than forty works, including fiction, poetry and critical essays, and her books have been published in over thirty-five countries. She has won many literary awards and prizes.
Atwood has never written with more flair and versatility than in
this multidimensional novel. Adding sardonic wit and
characterisation that takes you into the ambivalent intricacies of
a personality, this is a novel of extraordinary variety and reach.
A brilliant accomplishment * Peter Kemp, SUNDAY TIMES *
The fertility of Atwood's imagination is something extraordinary...The only thing familiar about The Blind Assassin is its technical accomplishment and exhilarating emotional power. Everything else is sparkling new * Kathryn Hughes, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
Margaret Atwood is one of the most brilliant and unpredictable novelists alive * Kate Kellaway, LITERARY REVIEW *
With every year and every novel, Atwood's subjects get bigger...her new novel is so rich thematically and so convincing psychologically... THE BLIND ASSASSIN may indeed prove to be that most elusive of literary unicorns * Elaine Showalter, NEW STATESMAN *
