Beschreibung

Die kanadische Schriftstellerin Margaret Atwood schildert in ihrem Roman die Kindheit und Freundschaft zweier Frauen. Mit acht Jahren begegnen sich Elaine und Cordelia zum ersten Mal. Dreißig Jahre später kehrt Elaine als erfolgreiche Malerin, anläßlich einer Ausstellung, in ihre Heimatstadt Toronto zurück. Sie erinnert sich an ihre Kindheit und Jugend und an ihre Freundsschaft mit Cordelia, eine Freundschaft, die in Haßliebe ausartete und sogar die Männergeschichten im Leben der beiden Frauen in den Schatten stellte. Elaine Risley, a painter, returns to Toronto to find herself overwhelmed by her past. Memories of childhood - unbearable betrayals and cruelties - surface relentlessly, forcing her to confront the spectre of Cordelia, once her best friend and tormentor, who has haunted her for forty years. 'Not since Graham Greene has a novelist captured so forcefully the relationship between school bully and victim...Atwood's games are played, exquisitely, by little girls' LISTENER An exceptional novel from the winner of the 2000 Booker Prize

She is one of our finest novelists. Read it THE TIMES Atwood's taut and exquisite use of language makes all her books irresistable... THE WEEK Margaret Atwood charts the psychological process of memory as compulsion and memory as a healing act through the character of Elaine Risley, an artist who returns to her home town of Toronto for a retrospective of her work.
