Publisher's Summary

A new book of poetry from internationally acclaimed, award-winning, and best-selling author Margaret Atwood.

In Dearly, Margaret Atwood’s first collection of poetry in over a decade, Atwood addresses themes such as love, loss, the passage of time, the nature of nature - and zombies. Her new poetry is introspective and personal in tone, but wide-ranging in topic. In poem after poem, she casts her unique imagination and unyielding, observant eye over the landscape of a life carefully and intuitively lived. 

While many are familiar with Margaret Atwood’s fiction - including her ground-breaking and best-selling novels The Handmaid’s TaleThe TestamentsOryx, and Crake, among others - she has, from the beginning of her career, been one of our most significant contemporary poets. And she is one of the very few writers equally accomplished in fiction and poetry. This collection is a stunning achievement that will be appreciated by fans of her novels and poetry listeners alike.

Heavy!

All at once, these poems are happy, sad, wise, blunt, and direct. Atwood is a straight up heavyweight.
