    Comments about Payback:

    Hmmm, I read the local library copy and was so impressed, I had to have my own copy plus one for my brother. As would be expected, Margaret Atwood develops unique insights into the cultural and historical evolution of money. A "must have" for anyone with an interest in our money and trade systems in Western culture.

    Comment on this review

    'A fascinating, freewheeling examination of ideas of debt, balance and revenge in history, society and literature - Atwood has again struck upon our most current anxieties' The Times 'A stimulating, learned, and stylish read from an eminent author writing from a heartfelt perspective ... very provocative' Conrad Black 'Could hardly be more timely ... as clear a summary of the situation as I have read' Financial Times 'Lively and exceedingly timely ... At a time when so many of us are mired in debts of the financial variety it is worth remembering that it is the other, non-financial debts that we owe - to the planet, and to each other - that may prove most important' Observer
