In her brilliant and visionary new novel, ‘The Heart Goes Last’, Margaret Atwood puts the human heart to the ultimate test. Read this excerpt from her book, set in a near-future dystopia.
"It’s not a question of telling yourself that you are not the mind, you are not the body, because the one who is telling it is the mind. That way you are never going to get out of the mind. All telling is done by the mind itself, so you will be emphasizing the mind more and more.
The mind is very subtle; you have to be very, very alert about it. Don't use it. If you use it you strengthen it. You cannot use your mind to destroy your mind itself.
You have to understand that this mind cannot be used for its own suicide."
