Alias Grace, by Margaret AtwoodRead about the other entries on the list.
Hands down one of my favorite books. I reread it annually. I’d argue it’s Atwood’s strongest work of fiction, and I’d recommend it to folks unwilling to start with the “feminist” The Handmaid’s Tale. So basically I’m talking about my dad, I guess? Based on a famous murder in Canada, it traces the life of young immigrant Grace, from her point of trauma to the terrifying act it makes possible.
Alias Grace is one of Tracy Chevalier's six best books.
