Mise-en-abyme: Margaret Atwood’s The Blind Assassin
“Two and two doesn’t necessarily get you the truth. Two and two equals a voice outside the window. Two and two equals the wind.

It takes the reader on a dramatic plot ride which ends up destroying the notion of plot, and presents an exquisitely crafted and believable narrator which questions the whole idea of a narrative voice. Atwood’s control of her narrative voice is superb, as she layers the stories and voices together adeptly, leading us back always to ourselves, the ultimate character.
