Amazon Editorial Review

Exploring the paradox of female villainy, this  tale of three fascinating women is another peerless  display of literary virtuosity by the supremely  gifted author of Cat's Eye and  The Handmaid's Tale. Roz, Charis  and Tony all share a wound, and her name is Zenia.  Beautiful, smart and hungry, by turns manipulative  and vulnerable, needy and ruthless, Zenia is the  turbulent center of her own neverending saga. She  entered their lives in the sixties, when they were  in college. Over the three decades since, she has  damaged each of them badly, ensnaring their  sympathy, betraying their trust, and treating their men  as loot. Then Zenia dies, or at any rate the three  women -- with much relief -- attend her funeral.  But as The Robber Bride begins,  Roz, Charis and Tony have come together at a  trendy restaraunt for their monthly lunch when in walks  the seemingly resurrected Zenia...

In  this consistently entertaining and profound new  novel, Margaret Atwood reports from the farthest  reaches of the war between the sexes with her  characteristic well-crafted prose, rich and devious humor,  and compassion.
