Surfacing: by Margaret Atwood

A slim, early work by Atwood, that took some ideas from her much better "Edible Woman" and gave an entire passage to the later "Cats Eye." A woman brings her boyfriend and another couple with her to an isolated island in Canada after her father disappears. They stay for a week and in various ways start to unravel. Though Atwood's exploration of loneliness and desolute wilderness were fascinating and her language as always beautiful, the story itself was distant and a little obvious.
