Seven stories by seven up-and-coming Canadian women writers, handpicked by Canada's leading lady of fiction and read by noted women actors -- this is the idea behind a compelling audio compilation of the best new short fiction.

Margaret Atwood Presents features stories by Annabel Lyon, Caroline Adderson, Nancy Lee, Elise Levine, Lisa Moore, Kristi-Ly Green, and Sheila Heti. Brilliant, daring, funny, and frequently, these writers pull no punches when it comes to depicting society as they see it. In "Sally In Parts," Nancy Lee from Vancouver explores a young woman's unusual relationship with her body. In "Cancer," Toronto writer Kristi-Ly Green describes a primary-school class's ambivalent responses towards a poor little rich girl. Lisa Moore of St. John's, Newfoundland, brings a haunting, sensuous intensity to a tale of love in "Haloes," while Toronto's Sheila Heti upends traditional forms in the sharp urban parable, "The Princess and the Plumber."

Vividly brought to life through the voices of Liisa Repo-Martell, Mag Ruffman, Chapelle Jaffe, Genevieve Steele, Sandra Oh, Juno Mills-Cockell, and Mary Lewis, these stories herald an exciting new generation of Canadian women writers.
