Margaret Atwood is one of my favourite books. In fact, I think Oryx and Crake is my favourite novel of all time, and The Blind Assassin is definitely Top 5.

He said there was no corresponding word that meant to behave like a sister. Sororize, it would have to be, he said. He liked knowing about such details. The derivations of words, curious usages.
