by Margaret Atwood
I really wanted to like this book. It is about the subtle manner in which girls cut down each others\’ self esteem…. as far as I could tell. The main character ended up being an artist; the first part of the book is mostly flashbacks of her schoolgirl days, with interspersing chapters of her dealing with a retrospective show of her artwork in Toronto… I wanted to read more about her as an artist, but it just wasn\’t getting there quickly and my interest lagged. Maybe I\’ll try this one again later.
Abandoned 480 pages, 1989
