Each story focuses on the ways relationships transform a character’s life: a woman’s complex love for a married man, the grief upon the death of parents and the joy with the birth of children, the realisation of what growing old with someone you love really means.
By turns funny, lyrical, incisive, earthy, shocking, and deeply personal, Moral Disorder displays Atwood’s celebrated storytelling gifts and unmistakable style to their best advantage.
"Her stories are sophisticated, reticent, ornate, stark, supple, stiff, savage or forgiving; they are exactly what she wants them to be. They are stories from the prime of life." ( Times Literary Supplement)

A stylish, well-written story that leads you...?
Atword writes about the life of a woman who doesn't fit well into any of the moral "boxes" of her day. Like all her books, the works are precise and the phrases and tempo remain interesting. The content is another matter.
I like Margaret Atwood because she's a very good writer, because she turn a phrase, and because she's Canadian. Sadly, after reading some of her (far) better books, I hung in there on this one...hoping for something big...or at least worthwhile. The work dies in slow and unnoticable death.
Keep browsing...you can do better than this.
Respectfully sorry, Ms. Atwood.
