Stone Mattress

A Story

A Vintage Shorts "Short Story Month" Selection

The author of such towering novels as The Handmaid's Tale, The Blind Assassin, and Oryx and Crake, Margaret Atwood proves her imaginative prowess dazzles just as vividly in her short fiction. "Stone Mattress," from her collection of the same name is witty, grotesque, and utterly hilarious-an exemplar of Atwood's tremendous capacity for capturing our darkest impulses on the page.

Verna, aging widow, boards a cruise ship bound for the Arctic in search of her next husband. The last four had suffered regrettable tragedies and left Verna wickedly wealthy in their wake. But, instead of finding another wealthy suitor, Verna finds unwitting Bob, the first man to have ever wronged her. Single, reasonably near his grave, ordinary, and attracted to her like all the others-Bob is all-too-easy prey for Verna's merciless revenge.

An ebook short.
