Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood

The enormously prolific grand dame of Canadian literature’s Hag-Seed is a reworking of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. The familiar tale now features theatre director Felix, who is ousted from his role as artistic director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival, exiled, and years later, seeks retribution. Expect Atwood’s characteristic humour, brilliant prose, and fresh insights into Shakespeare’s text. It’s part of the Hogarth Shakespeare series, to which Anne Tyler and Jeanette Winterson have also contributed. —Aileen Lalor
