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?
