Today Margaret Atwood's Year of the Flood is released, amid great hype and expectation. However, as everything she writes is approached with either extreme caution or suspension of disbelief, the book is bound to be a success. Critics will buy it just to pan it, and fans will buy it and love it before they read it. Either way, I am eagerly anticipating her appearance here in Ottawa in a couple of weeks, for the book tour is creating some major buzz (so, too, is her blog)
Check out a review of the book here, and the book tour here. Atwood fan or not, this is an event to behold.
