Stone Mattress was a delight to read. I always find that Atwoods fiction shows the world in a light that is unlike any other. The stories draw us in, told by narrators of questionable authority and reliability, bringing us into possible past, current, and future lives. Reading the stories I am left with the uncertainty of what is meant to be real or fantastic. Is there magic or is it all a hallucination? Masterfully told stories. I highly recommend this collection of short stories.
