Curious Pursuits By Margaret Atwood

Spanning 35 years, Atwood's collected essays on literature and life add up to an informal autobiography of a brave heart, and a restless mind. A sardonic, sharply witty critic, and coolly sceptical observer, she illuminates everything she touches - from the Canadian past to Angela Carter to "female bad behaviour" in fiction. Decade-by-decade snapshots of her works, and thoughts, add to the appeal of this self-portrait of the artist as idol-slayer and mischief-maker.
