Dancing Girls is Margaret Atwood’s highly praised first collection of short fiction. In it she explores the dark intricacies of the mind, the complexities of human relationships, and the clashes between cultures. In the stories, the mundane and the bizarre intersect in unexpected ways: ex-wives indulge in an odd feast at a psychiatrist’s funeral; a young student is pursued by an obsessed immigrant; an old woman stores up supplies against an impending cataclysm. The fourteen stories range in setting from Canada to England, from Mexico to the United States, and portray characters who touch us and arouse in us compassion and understanding. In this astonishing collection, Margaret Atwood maps human motivation we scarcely know we have.

    Forse è una questione di gap temporali/culturali ma questo libro non mi ha trasmesso altro che un senso di pesantezza incredibile.
    Non ne ho capito il senso, a meno che non fosse quello di illustrare o catalogare la malinconia femminile.

    A parte il fatto che il titolo è assolutamente non pertinente al contenuto di questa raccolta di racconti che in lingua originale si chiama 'Dancing Girls', nessuno di questi racconti mi ha fatto gridare al miracolo. Evitabile.

    I've never cared over much for Atwood's short stories. There are a few I enjoyed, but on the whole I'm not bothered if I never read this again.

    I always enjoy Attwood - and find her short stories engaging, however I forget what was in the book very quickly so for that reason it's not got and "I love it!"
