a little something about Alias Grace

I'm a huge fan of Margaret Atwood in general, and specifically her book Alias Grace, inspired by the did-she-or-didn't-she true story of 19th-century convicted Canadian murderess Grace Marks. (Readers of The Magician's Lie will note some serious similarities!)

I wrote a little something for the Chicago Review of Books about what I hoped to see in the new Netflix version of Atwood's story. It's a great preview if you haven't seen the series yet, especially if you enjoyed the Hulu version of "The Handmaid's Tale."
