"Bioperversity," by Lorrie Moore. The New Yorker ( May 19th, 2003) p. 88-89.

In Lorrie Moore's review of Margaret Atwood's novel, "Oryx and Crake," Moore notes that Atwood [is] "rare among feminist writers in apparently liking her men--if not their institutions--better than her women. (Not since Edith Wharton has a female writer filled her oeuvre with so many unpleasant female characters.)

note: the quotation appears on p. 89
