November Bookclub: Stone Mattress

Sunday 1 November 2015 by

We’re changing the theme a little bit this month and I’ve picked a collection of short stories from one of my favourite authors…

Stone Mattress, Margaret Atwood, Virago, Book, Reading, #HoBBookclub

Stone Mattress: Nine Wicked Tales by Margaret Atwood

Published by Virago

A recently widowed fantasy writer is guided through a stormy winter evening by the voice of her late husband. An elderly lady with Charles Bonnet syndrome comes to terms with the little people she keeps seeing, while a newly formed populist group gathers to burn down her retirement residence. A woman born with a genetic abnormality is mistaken for a vampire, and a crime committed long ago is revenged in the Arctic via a 1.9 billion-year-old stromalite.
