This month, Julie Hale selected Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood as her top pick for book clubs. “A strange and beautiful work, this masterful narrative proves that Atwood can do anything as a novelist,” says Hale, who knows her literary fiction (in addition to having an MFA, she’s been writing this column for nearly 10 years!).
BookPage reviewer Stephenie Harrison was similarly impressed in her review of the hardcover edition, saying that “Atwood’s message remains chilling, timely and necessary.”
