Description
A powerful and brilliantly crafted novel, Bodily Harm is the story of Rennie Wilford, a young journalist whose life has begun to shatter around the edges. Rennie flies to the Caribbean to recuperate, and on the tiny island of St. Antoine, she is confronted by a world where her rules for survival no longer apply. By turns comic, satiric, relentless, and terrifying, Margaret Atwood's Bodily Harm is ultimately an exploration of the lust for power, both sexual and political, and the need for compassion that goes beyond what we ordinarily mean by love".The acerbic wit that is an Atwood trademark...political insights...comedy and pathos, and in the end, tragedy". -- Chicago Sun-TimesHumor and satire, thoughtfulness, and lots of action make this a jam-packed novel". -- The Washington Post"Romance and adventure by a female Graham Greene at his peak". -- Marilyn French, author of The Women's Room"This is a story about one of today's women...Bodily Harm is strong stuff, and the writing is nearly flawless". -- People
