Margaret Atwood (1939 ….)

The Bad News from the collection entitled Moral Disorder (2006), Virago. This is the first story in the collection and introduces the Nell, who is the protagonist in all eleven stories. Bad news is bad news in whatever century it is given and here, Atwood moves  from Canada in recents times, back to Glanum (on the outskirts of modern day St Remy de Provence) in the 3rd century, where the same but different story of bad news s recounted.
