Atwood to release first short story collection since 2014

Margaret Atwood’s next book, Old Babes in the Wood, will be her first short story collection since 2014’s Stone Mattress. The collection is available for pre-order now and will be released on March 7, 2023.

Penguin Random House promises “a dazzling collection of short stories that look deeply into the heart of family relationships, marriage, loss and memory, and what it means to spend a life together,” and goes on to praise: “Atwood showcases both her creativity and her humanity in these remarkable tales which by turns delight, illuminate, and quietly devastate.”
