Hilltop School closed its fall term with just ninety-five students; it opened again two weeks later, on the third of January, with ninety-six; and thereby hangs this tale. Kenneth Garwood had been booked for Hilltop in the autumn, but circumstances had interfered with the family's plans. Instead he journeyed to Moritzville on the afternoon of the day preceding the commencement of the new term, a very cold and blustery January afternoon, during much of which he sat curled tightly into a corner of his seat in the poorly heated day coach, which was the best the train afforded, and wondered why the Connecticut Valley was so much colder than Cleveland, Ohio. He had taken an early train from New York, and all the way to Moritzville had sought with natural eagerness for sight of his future schoolmates. But he had been unsuccessful. When Hilltop returns to school it takes the mid-afternoon express which reaches Moritzville just in time for dinner, whereas Kenneth reached the school before it was dark, and at a quarter of five was in undisputed possession, for the time being, of Number 12, Lower House.

Alles ist Illusion – Margaret Atwoods Verneigung vor dem großen Bühnenmagier William Shakespeare Felix ist ein begnadeter Theatermacher und in der Szene ein Star. Seine Inszenierungen sind herausfordernd, aufregend, legendär. Nun will er Shakespeares „Der Sturm“ auf die Bühne bringen. Das soll ihn noch berühmter machen – und ihm helfen, eine private Tragödie zu vergessen. Doch nach einer eiskalten Intrige seiner engsten Mitarbeiter zieht sich Felix zurück, verliert sich in Erinnerungen und sinnt auf Rache. Die Gelegenheit kommt zwölf Jahre später, als ein Zufall die Verräter in seine Nähe bringt. In ihrem brillanten Roman schafft die große kanadische Autorin Margaret Atwood mit der Figur des Theaterdirektors Felix ein würdiges Pendant zu Shakespeares Prospero aus „Der Sturm“, jenes Zauberers, der als ein Selbstporträt des alternden Barden aus Stratford-on-Avon gilt.
