THE ROBBER BRIDE - Margaret Atwood
"Zenia is pure, free-wheeling malevolence; she wants wreckage, she wants scorched earth. she wnats broken glass'......
Roz, Charis and Tony were all contemporaries of Zenia in the sixties. Each of them has been badly damaged by her once........ Now Zena is dead... But suddenly shes alive again.." to menace these three women.
This is very entertaining and although Zenia is ''pure free-wheeling malevolence" she is a great character and adds much to the lives of the three friends whose existence she walks in and out of.
We all need a Zenia in our lives at some stage to show us whats important.
I love Margaret Atwoods writing that is all.
