Moral Disorder: A Story

A Novella by

The author of such towering novels as The Handmaid's Tale,The Blind Assassin, and Oryx and Crake, Margaret Atwood creates worlds just as vividly in her short fiction. In the title story from her acclaimed collection of linked stories Moral Disorder, Margaret Atwood takes us to the farm.

Newly arrived city slickers, like Nell and Tig, shouldn't have animals; a notion corroborated by the true farmers down the road: for them, livestock would mean dead stock. But Tig's two boys will be at the farm on weekends, and it would be good for them to know where their food comes from. First come the chickens, then the ducks; before Nell knows it the cows have arrived, too. And soon Nell finds herself becoming a different woman than she ever thought she might be.

The New York Times notes that "The tremendous imaginative power of [Atwood's] fiction allows us to believe that anything is possible" - this applies as much to her fantastically imagined worlds as it does to the life of a family in the countryside.
