In her latest short story collection, Atwood frames eight stories focused on female agency, voice, friendship, empowerment, and legacy with seven stories featuring married couple Tig&Nell / Nell&Tig. From “First Aid” to “Old Babes,” “My Evil Mother” through “Bad Teeth” and “Metempsychosis,” each of the fifteen stories soars independently and becomes deeper in connection. With her supple imagination and glorious language and imagery, Atwood’s Old Babes in the Wood finds new ways to explore self and relationships, love and loss, grief and death, and the power of memory.
