About the Author
MARGARET ATWOOD, whose work has been pub-lished in over thirty-five countries, is the author of more than forty books of fiction, poetry, and critical essays. In addition to The Handmaid's Tale, her nov-els include Cat's Eye, shortlisted for the Booker Prize; Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy; The Blind Assassin, winner of the 2000 Booker Prize; Oryx and Crake, shortlisted for the 2003 Booker Prize; and her most recent, The Year of the Flood.
The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series, and their recent novels include The Cabinet of Dr. Leng, Diablo Mesa, Bloodless, The Scorpion's Tail, and Crooked River. In addition to his novels, Preston is the author of the award-winning nonfiction book The Lost City of the Monkey God. Child is a Florida resident and former book editor who has published eight novels of his own, including such bestsellers as Chrysalis and Deep Storm.
Reviews

A Lit Hub "Most Anticipated Books of 2022" * A Hartford Courant "Highly Anticipated Book" * A Readers Digest "New Books We Can't Wait to Read" * A PBS "Monthly Book Recommendation" * A New York Times "New Book to Read" * An Amazon Editor's Pick * The Messenger's "10 Must Read Books" -- -

"An interesting experiment in collective storytelling." -- Literary Hub

"Proves that even a global pandemic can't curb creativity .... that the stories we leave behind are what makes us human." -- Associated Press

"These stories introduce a theme of diversity that's one of the joys of the book. There are ghost stories, a war story, many tales of betrayal and revenge, and a report on Shakespeare's plague experience by scholar James Shapiro.... A multicultural tribute to the New York lockdown experience....moving and..funny..." -- Kirkus Reviews

"...the storytellers are splendidly diverse in race, age, gender, ethnicity, and calling....Putting a bold new twist on the plague novel, this bountiful, unpredictable, witty, and affecting tale-of-tales is made all the more intriguing by the fact that it's a collaboration by 36 exceptional North American writers....This enthralling novel of many voices and moods dramatizes the transformation of isolation into community via stories and explores a grand spectrum of human experiences." -- Booklist (starred review)

"...beguiling.... fans of literary puzzles will find this worthwhile." -- Publishers Weekly

"An immensely enjoyable product of an immensely unenjoyable time, Fourteen Days is lively, freewheeling and, with its skillfully paced denouement - the super herself's tale - an impressive achievement."
-- The Guardian

"Paradise for avid readers." -- Los Angeles Times

"A rich melting pot of characters and genres....a valuable reminder that stories can teach, console, provide a place of acceptance and perhaps even change their readers (or listeners)." -- Financial Times

"Poignant and emotionally resonant....Should you wait until you're finished to read the end notes that detail who wrote what?....I guarantee some of the matches -- and the way the stories are thrown together -- will surprise you." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"Reading Fourteen Days is like sitting by a campfire, with characters taking turns telling tales about their lives."
-- The Economist

"Highly entertaining." -- Berkshire Edge

"The stories lead toward an overall point about how people form communities. When the group offers hospitality toward the end, it is apparent that the individual storytellers, for all their differences, have become a community. It's a sign of hope and resilience for humanity." -- Daily Kos

"The publication of Fourteen Days could not have been more timely...The power of much of the writing here is undeniable, as is the sense of personal testimony." -- The Guardian
