Críticas:

"Witty and frequently biting ... this book's stories offer characters a chance to put their own understandings of gallantry, courage and revenge to the test, in ways both mundane and extraordinary."
--"The New York Times Book Review
"
"In "Stone Mattress" [Atwood is] having a high old time dancing over the dark swamps of Horror on the wings of satirical wit ... Look at these tales as eight icily refreshing arsenic Popsicles followed by a baked Alaska laced with anthrax, all served with impeccable style and aplomb. Enjoy!"
--Ursula K Le Guin, "Financial Times
"

--"Chicago Tribune"
"Stunning ... Atwood brings her biting wit to bear on the battle of the sexes."

"Pure, simple and stunning. . . . Endearing, subtle, quite brilliant." --"San Francisco Chronicle
""Powerful. . . . Witty and frequently biting, "Stone Mattress" is keen to the ways in which we choose, all our lives, to love and to hurt--and in Atwood's world these two actions are always choices, creating consequences for which we will one day be held to account." --"The New York Times Book Review

"A collection rich in sly humour and pulpy thrills." --"The Telegraph" (London)
"This collection of short stories is charged with a delightful cheekiness, as well as a full awareness of the subjectivity of notions of justice and value. . . . Witty, weird, chirpily irreverent, somewhat hard-hearted, and hugely insightful." --"The Independent" (London)
"[Atwood's] ability to surprise and her sparkling language are on full display. . . . "Stone Mattress" not only showcases its author's talents at their most refined, it also affords a glimpse behind the curtain to the woman working the megaphone." --"The Globe and Mail" (Toronto)
"Wickedly funny, mordantly observed ruminations on how the sexes interact. . . . With "Stone Mattress," Atwood brilliantly returns to her literary roots as a deliciously funny observer of the human comedy." --"The Toronto Star"

Reseña del editor:

A Best Book of the Year: NPR, BookRiot
In this extraordinary collection, Margaret Atwood gives us nine unforgettable tales that reveal the grotesque, delightfully wicked facets of humanity. Alphinland, the first of three loosely linked tales, introduces us to a fantasy writer who is guided through a stormy winter evening by the voice of her late husband. In Lusus Naturae, a young woman, monstrously transformed by a genetic defect, is mistaken for a vampire. And in the title story, a woman who has killed four husbands discovers an opportunity to exact vengeance on the first man who ever wronged her.
By turns thrilling, funny, and thought-provoking, Stone Mattress affirms Atwood as our greatest creator of worlds and as an incisive chronicler of our darkest impulses."
