Life before man
1st Anchor Books ed.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale A particularly complicated love triangle sets this poetic Margaret Atwood novel in motion. Elizabeth and Nate, though habitually unfaithful to each other, have remained married for more than a decade. But after Elizabeth's latest lover commits suicide, she emerges from her grief to find that her gentle, indecisive husband is on the verge of leaving her. He has become enamored of Lesje, a young paleontologist and perennial innocent who seems to prefers dinosaur fossils to humans. Elizabeth sets her sights on Lesje's live-in boyfriend, William, and the ensuing emotional maelstrom threatens to upend all of their lives. Blending painful honesty with cutting satire, Margaret Atwood give us characters whose haunting dilemmas linger long after the final page.
