Moral disorder by Margaret Atwood

In the end, we’ll all become stories.

Margaret Atwood, who wrote also “The handmaid’s tale” (a beautiful and dramatic novel I already read), in this book follows the live of a Canadian girl by telling eleven specific moments of her life, from childhood to adulthood, as to prove that instants, in the hand of a writer, can easily become stories – they may change in their essence but they also open to the world.

The common feature of the stories is the emotional uneasiness of the main character, and the melancholy that pervade different moments (the parents growing old, her sister’s illness, her relation with the ex-wife of her man). My doubt is how much of this could come from the author life itself, existing some common elements.

It’s a beautiful and pleasing read, both for the emotional involvement it creates both for the evocative descriptions of the Canadian country and woods.
