"Alias Grace has all the pacing of a commercial novel and all the resonance of a classic." --The Washington Post Book World "A stunning novel full of sly wit, compassion and insight, boasting writing that is lyrical, assured, evocative of time and place, and seductive in its power to engage us." --Houston Chronicle "Atwood provides the elements of a walloping good read: suspense, mystery, titillation, and a fully crafted but never ponderous historical milieu." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch "Villain or victim, Atwood's Grace is intriguing company." --People "A shadowy, fascinating novel." --Time
