Dancing girls (Atwood) 136

Another collection of short stories, this time Margaret Atwood's Dancing girls. I really enjoyed reading these - they were from my favourite side of Atwood, where she writes about everyday life as opposed to science fiction. The stories are all about women, in a variety of situations - from Laura who is being stalked by a foreign student to a Canadian graduate student at a university that seemed to be modelled on Harvard. My only negative was that the "contemporary" setting felt a little dated by now.

Three very different Virago covers - I have the second one which actually has a green spine although there is not a hint of green on the cover!
