Stone Mattress by Margaret Atwood

Stone Mattress

Stone Mattress is a book of nine short stories that all revolve around someone of old age. While the first three stories are all connected, the following stories have no affiliation. However, running throughout every one of the nine tales is the theme of “wickedness,” and whether that be manifested in murder, haunting, or visions, the tales are riveting and short enough to be read in one sitting.
This is the second book I have read by Margaret Atwood, and I really enjoy her voice and sense of suspense. I will definitely read one of her other books.
