In an annotated bibliography of 2,000 items, McCombs (Canadian poet, Atwood scholar) and Palmer (academic librarian) have admirably accomplished their stated purpose, "to create a text that serves to document accurately the critical reputation of Margaret Atwood." International in scope, the completeness of the bibliography owes much to Atwood's making her private archive available to the authors. Citations to journal and newspaper articles, interviews, book reviews, and dissertations cover the years from 1962 through 1987, with some reference to significant anthologies published in 1988 and 1989. Author and subject indexes are provided. It would have been helpful to readers had Atwood's works been identified by genre (e.g., novel, poetry.) Because of the number of works cited (286 in the year 1986), it would also have been helpful if citations, which are arranged chronologically and by author within each year, had first been subdivided by title of work. The book greatly expands and updates Alan J. Horne's two-volume Margaret Atwood, an Annotated Bibliography (1979-80). For further citations readers are referred to Palmer's "Current Atwood Checklist," published annually since 1986 in Newsletter of the Margaret Atwood Society. This excellent work is highly recommended.-B. K. Lacks, California State University, Fresno
