Description
This splendid novel, first published in 1993, is an exploration of the paradox of woman as villain. With more than 400,000 copies already in print, this first appearance in trade paperback will allow thousands of new readers to enjoy Atwood's virtuoso wit.

Set in contemporary Toronto, the novel revolves around the lives of three fascinating women. Classmates from university, Roz, Charis, and Tony all shared the seductive and destructive experience of a past friendship with the flashy, sensuous, smart, irresistible Zenia. As the novel opens, they are twenty years past their college days and have met at Zenia's funeral. At lunch, after the funeral, they spot Zenia -- not dead at all and up to no good.
