This Old Thing?: Bluebeard's Egg
File this one under cover doesn't match the text. It gives the impression that Bluebeard's Egg by Margaret Atwood is a fantasy about a fairy who really loves a blue egg. Or maybe she's really hungry. Mmmm, frittata. But no, it's a collection of short stories about relationships between men and women. The title story is about a woman with a dumb husband.
Another library sale find. I'll add this to my "I'll get to it someday" pile.
