SummaryFrom the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's TaleIn this delightful mélange of short fiction, Margaret Atwood pushes the boundaries of form in intriguing directions. Alongside meditations on warlords, cat heaven, and orphans, she offers a sly pep talk to the ambitious young, laments the proliferation of photos of oneself, imagines an apocalypse of worms, and recalls Helen of Troy's childhood Kool-Aid stand. In the title fable, a writer huddled inside a tent of paper engages in doodling as self-defense, scribbling on the walls in a frantic attempt to keep out encroaching horrors. Adorned with her own playful illustrations, The Tent is replete with Atwood's droll humor, keen insight, and lyric brilliance.
