From the Back Cover:

Powerful and in many ways frightening, SURFACING, Margaret Atwood’s second novel, is one woman’s haunting quest for her own self.

A nameless woman in her late twenties, the narrator travels to the island cabin in desolate northern Quebec where she spent her childhood to search for her missing father. In the course of a few painful days, the truth about her own life surfaces, the experience made all the more lonely by the company of three friends – her current lover and another couple – who are unaware of the processes moving within her.

First published to international acclaim in 1972, SURFACING helped establish Atwood’s stature as one of the most important writers of contemporary literature.
