SummaryAdd a Summary
Margaret Atwood is a master storyteller. She's created a highly unlikely scenario, but made it very believable. The characters are likeable and I found myself pulling for them.
Spoiler alert -- I wrote this to remind myself of the story months from now. Felix, a luminary in the theater world, was betrayed by his assistant, Tony, and Sal, Tony's buddy. He skulks away to a shanty where he resides with the spirit which he imagines of his daughter Miranda who had died. He landed a job as producer and director of the theater program of a local prison. He designs a wonderful program to help the men improve themselves and their prospects by doing Shakespeare -- up-to-date versions of Shakespeare. The opportunity presents itself to exact the revenge on Tony and Sal, who have moved up the ranks into fairly powerful government positions. He takes the opportunity and strips them of the power and prestige they unethically acquired, and also gets a promise of 5 more years of funding for the prison theater program.
