Margaret Atwood was born in 1939 in Ottawa and spent the earlier part of her youth in the woods for two thirds of every year. Her novels include The Handmaid's Tale and Alias Grace -- both of which have recently been serialized for streaming -- The Blind Assassin (which won the Booker Prize in 2000), The MaddAddam Trilogy, The Heart Goes Last, and Hag-Seed, a novel re-visiting of The Tempest. Her most recent collection of poetry is The Door. Her non-fiction works include Survival, her 1972 attempt to demonstrate that Canadian literature did -- at that time – exist, Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth, and A Writer on Writing. Her most recent graphic series is Angel Catbird. She has served in various capacities with several organizations, including PEN International and BirdLife International. She continues to be surprised by human behaviour, both noble and not.
