Moral Disorder by the amazing Atwood

Isn’t Margaret Atwood just amazing?  I got a little behind on my Project Atwood, but I picked up Moral Disorder at the library and figured I’d just read a short story here and there.

But I couldn’t do that.  I ended up reading the entire book straight through, which is unusual when it’s a book of short stories.  Similar to The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, Moral Disorder is a book of connected short stories.

The stories span decades of time, but stick with many of the same characters, who are all related.  I really enjoyed them, and feel like this is a different type of book that I haven’t seen yet from Atwood.  She can do dystopian political fiction on very tough topics, she can do poetry and short stories, nonfiction, and children’s books.  Now this, which is an interconnected book of short stories!

I guess the question is: What CAN’T Atwood do?


Interested in getting your own copy? Check it out on Amazon & IndieBound. I get a small percentage if you purchase from those links, and it doesn’t cost you any extra.

  1. Atwood is fantastic! She is able to write whatever kind of story she sets her mind to. I discovered her recently with The blind assassin and I can’t wait to read the rest of her work. Where that woman has been all my life?


    • Oh my goodness, does this mean you have not read The Handmaid’s Tale yet????? DO IT!!! 🙂

      Yes, I just LOVE her. I’m incredibly jealous of my aunt and uncle who just got to hear her speak within the past week.


  2. Agreed. Atwood is sheer genius. If you ever have the chance to see her in person – go! She is witty, unconventional and engaging. I just may have a girl crush on her.


    • Jealous!!! And actually I didn’t have a chance to see her but my aunt and uncle JUST went within the past week to see her! I am seeing them for dinner tonight and am hoping they will regale me with stories of how she is their new best friend!
