“The Year of the Flood beautifully combines the stories of two women, Ren and Toby, who simultaneously grapple with the new world they are suddenly faced with. As they peel away the layers still left, we as readers do so, too, and we uncover piece by piece their fragmented pasts. Atwood has once again written a novel filled with a mystery that she brilliantly nourishes with fantastic answers.”
-- Ella Maslin, Oblong Books & Music, Rhinebeck, NY
