Elaine, a famous artist is invited to Toronto where she grew up, to assemble a retrospective of her art. The combination of the retrospective and coming back to her home town causes Elaine to think over her life, including some very difficult friendships she had as a child. Normally I love Margaret Atwood. I listened to the audio version of this book (narrated by Barbara Caruso) and I found her narration to be soooo incredibly slow and depressing. I don't know if it was the book or the audio narration. Definitely not my favorite Margaret Atwood.
