CHPL Adult Story Time

"Lusus Naturae," from Stone Mattress: Nine Wicked Tales by Margaret Atwood

Enjoy a short story called "Lusus Naturae" from Margaret Atwood's short story collection called Stone Mattress: Nine Wicked Tales, read aloud by Tierney, our Supervisor of Reference & Adult Services.

While following along, consider the following questions:
1. Do you think the narrator is reliable? Why or why not?
2. What similarities do you see between the narrator’s tale and the COVID-19 pandemic?
3. The narrator says, “When demons are required someone will always be found to supply the part.” Can you think of real-life examples where this
has been true?

4. Do you think the narrator is “a human being,” as her father insists? If not, what is she?
5. After her years of isolation, what finally led to the narrator’s demise?
