Alias Grace - Margaret Atwood


"Alias Grace" by Canadian author Margaret Atwood is a novel of historical fiction.

From the back:
Grace Marks has been convicted for her involvement in the vicious murders of her employer, the wealthy Thomas Kinnear, and his housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery. Years later, Dr. Simon Jordan - and up-and-coming expert in the burgeoning field of mental illness - listens to Grace's story, from her family's difficult passage from Ireland to Canada, to her time as a maid in Thomas Knnear's household. As Grace relives her past, Jordan draws her closer to a dark maze of relationships and her lost memories of the day her life was shattered.

This paperback copy was published in 1997 by Seal Books. There is some wear and tear of the spine, and some damage to the edges of the cover.
