OK, Atwood has bewitched me - that voice! that smile! that fierce intelligence! - but why I'm the only person to have reviewed this life-spanning collection of scattered pieces written to commission (the closest to an autobiography we're likely to get) I cannot imagine. Could it be that novel-readers do not read non-fiction? What a strange, constricted world they must inhabit. Like all modest people (she's a Canadian, after all!) Atwood claims to be a reluctant reviewer and speechgiver (who'd have thought it?) but this intellectual journey is fully as enjoyable as Alan Bennett's first omnium gatherum. (He's fallen off rather lately, wouldn't you say?)
