Canadian author Margaret Atwood has written numerous collections of poetry and short stories and fourteen novels about diverse subjects, including The Blind Assassin (2000) and The Handmaid's Tale (1985).

I haven't read all of them but I've enjoyed the ones I've read except for Cat's Eye, which was painful to read (it's about little girls at school bullying each other and first hand experience had taught me more than enough about that subject).

Of those I've read I would say The Handmaid's Tale was the best. Feminst (though I gather the author says otherwise) and brilliant.
I've come late to Margaret Atwood. The only one I have read is The Handmaid's Tale, but this has inspired me to place a few holds at the local library.. Undoubtedly Cat's Eye will have a little more depth than Jai'me, but it does not appeal.
I too have only read 'The Handmaid's Tale'. I enjoyed it well enough to consider reading more of her work. It has been a while too, so I think I may reread it. Thanks for posting the question.

The Robber Bride and Alias Grace are both excellent reads!
Her first one. Didn't bother with others after that.
