Ranging from book review of John Updike and Toni Morrison to an appreciation of Dashiel Hamnet; an account of a journey in Afghanistan that sewed 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.
