THE BLIND ASSASSIN by Margaret Atwood 2000
‘Ten days after the war ended, my sister Laura drove a car off a bridge.’ Thus begins the Blind Assassin, Margaret Atwood’s stunning new novel. …
Sexually explicit for its time, The Blind Assassin describes a risky affair in the turbulent thirties between a wealthy young woman and a man on the run. During their secret meetings in rented rooms, the lovers concoct a pulp fantasy set on Planet Zycron. As the invented story twists through love and sacrifice and betrayal, so does the real one; while events in both move closer to war and catastrophe. By turns lyrical, outrageous, formidable, compelling and funny, this is a novel filled with deep humour and dark drama. It is Margaret Atwood at her breath-taking best.
