    Margaret Atwood occupies a strange nook in my heart She s become a bit of a chore lately, as I m including her in my senior honors thesis on the other hand, I ve now read almost all of her novels, and while none are bad or evennot really good Just that because a few of the novels shine so brightly, that the others seem duller in comparison.Well, Alias Grace is a supernova It s an absolutely phenomenal novel, and a truly thrilling read It s a departure for Atwood, as it s historical ficti

    I keep kicking myself for having ditched the Atwood Speaking Gala at A.W.P in Chicago this year The fierce literati kept the attendance so high that it was virtually as if Lady Gaga herself were to give a lecture on her impressive work I was interested in walking all around Chitown, anyway, but I really semi regret not having nabbed a coveted seat She was probably amazing uberclever brilliant.Without two minor teeny infractions, Alias Grace is pretty much a well rounded, tot

    When you are in the middle of a story it isn t a story at all, but only a confusion a dark roaring, a blindness, a wreckage of shattered glass and splintered wood like a house in a whirlwind, or else a boat crushed by the icebergs or swept over the rapids, and all aboard powerless to stop it It s only afterwards that it becomes anything like a story at all When you are telling it, to yourself or to someone else This powerful passage is from Margaret Atwood s 1996 novel Alias Grace She dev

    The true character of the historical Grace Marks remains an enigma I have of course fictionalized historical events as did many commentators on this case who claimed to be writing history I have not changed any known facts, although the written accounts are so contradictory that few facts emerge as unequivocally known So says celebrated author, Margaret Atwood, about Grace Marks of whom she wrote this fictional account And indeed Grace remains an enigma throughout the novel As other

    Primera lectura de Atwood y primer acierto Alias Grace es una historia s rdida y cruel, muy bien documentada y que resulta apasionante a n en el relato de los sucesos m s sencillos hay dos cosas que me han sorprendido especialmente, el toque sobrenatural y la ambig edad del relato y los personajes Obviamente, seguir con Margaret Atwood

    At the very heart of certain narratives is a lacuna, to which the reader is drawn ineluctibly, as the centre of a whirlpool of meanings It may indicate something essentially unknowable, ineffable the lacuna in the Old Testament is when God tells Moses I AM THAT I AM, which lets us know in no uncertain terms that this thing is not of logic or language, whatever it may be the lacuna of the New Testament is Christ s three days in the tomb we are not told anything about that, it is unknowable.

    This is an extraordinary reconstruction of the life of Grace Marks, a domestic servant who was convicted of the double murder of her employers in Canada in the 1840s In framing the story around her interviews with a young doctor interested in making his name by proving her innocence, Atwood is able to avoid committing herself on the degree of Grace s guilt and complicity while exploring a range of wider social issues The doctor s troubled relationship with his deserted landlady is interwoven a

    Minor Spoilers This book is as close to time travel and walking in the shoes of another person as it gets, perfect historical fiction based on a fascinating actual case of a 15 year old girl thrown into prison for a double homicide Most of the story comes in from two perspectives, Grace Marks herself telling her story to a young MD psychologist working to see if he can get her released from prison, and then from the young physician himself listening to her story, never sure he can truly trus
