More About Evening Of Poetry & Jazz

Old Babes in the Wood by Margaret Atwood

In this collection of 15 extraordinary stories—some of which have appeared in The New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine—explore the full warp and weft of experience, speaking to our unique times with Atwood’s characteristic insight, wit and intellect. Old Babes in the Wood marks Atwood's return to short fiction since her 2014 collection Stone Mattress.

The two intrepid sisters of the title story grapple with loss and memory on a perfect summer evening; Impatient Griselda explores alienation and miscommunication with a fresh twist on a folkloric classic; and My Evil Mother touches on the fantastical, examining a mother-daughter relationship in which the mother purports to be a witch. At the heart of the collection are seven extraordinary stories that follow a married couple across the decades, the moments big and small that make up a long life of uncommon love—and what comes after.
