Virago, 2005 - 413 sÝur
Collected and published in the Uk for the first time, here are essays and journalism from the brilliant novelist. Ranging from book reviews of John Updike and Toni Morrison to an appreciation of Dashiell Hammet; an account of a journey in Afghanistan that sowed the seeds of The Handmaid's Tale; passionate ecological writings; funny stories of 'my most embarrassing moments'; obituaries of some of her great friends and fellow writers: Angela Carter, Carol Shields. This is an insightful, thoughtful and revealing record of the life and times of Margaret Atwood from 1960 to now.
