Alias Grace - Margaret Atwood Alias Grace is a true-crime story based off a event back in the 19th century. The only different between this being under fiction and mixing with a story based on actual event Ms. Atwood decided to take a twist and make the story her own. You see the mind of someone who claims they don't remember any thing and take you back through flashbacks from the beginning all the way to the events of the murder.I'm not the best with description so I would recommand going on wikepedia to look it up.
