Publisher's Summary

It's got a thunderstorm in it. And revenge. Definitely revenge.

Felix is at the top of his game as artistic director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival. His productions have amazed and confounded. Now he's staging a Tempest like no other: not only will it boost his reputation, it will heal emotional wounds. Or that was the plan.

Instead, after an act of unforeseen treachery, Felix is living in exile in a backwoods hovel, haunted by memories of his beloved lost daughter, Miranda. And brewing revenge.

After 12 years revenge finally arrives in the shape of a theatre course at a nearby prison. Here Felix and his inmate actors will put on his Tempest and snare the traitors who destroyed him. It's magic! But will it remake Felix as his enemies fall?

Margaret Atwood's novel take on Shakespeare's play of enchantment, revenge and second chances leads us on an interactive, illusion-ridden journey filled with new surprises and wonders of its own.

    Bookworm, librarian, chocaholic. Give me a good book, a bar of chocolate and a glass of fine wine and I'm a happy lady.

    "Clever dark humour makes for a great read.Loved it"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a high-class re-telling of Shakespeare's 'The Tempest.' It is full of clever ideas and twists and if you like Margaret Atwood's style of writing you will very likely love this. It is classic Atwood, full of witty dialogue, amazing imagination,clever and daring plotting and memorable characters. I listened to this story over two days, in awe of a master storyteller. Loved every minute of it.
    You don't need to be familiar with the Shakespeare play to enjoy this tale and there is some explanation of the Bard's characters at the end of the book.
