Margaret Atwood: Conversations | Margaret Atwood, Earl G. Ingersoll

Atwood made this form famous 🎃The #trick is the two ways it can be understood; read a line at a time, or read from the middle of one line to the middle of the next. #scarathlon2022 #poetrymatters #teammonstermash @TheSpineView

TheSpineView Great poem! Glad you choose it!🧡 3d

Margaret Atwood: Conversations | Margaret Atwood, Earl G. Ingersoll

COVID finally hit our household and along with lots of reality tv, I watched this 1984 documentary about Margaret Atwood. A filmmaker and his crew join Atwood and her family at her family's remote cottage for a few days. What follows are lots of pretty scenery and strained interviews with Atwood who clearly finds the guy's questions idiotic. 😆
Available on YouTube. Learned about it from the IG account @ girlsonthepage

Currently on the third book of the MaddAdam Trilogy by Atwood (I‘m mainly listening to the audio though). What a fitting read for current events… you sometimes get the feeling that the world described is not as far away as I wish it was🙃🙃

sarahbarnes That is the truth! 6mo
JillR Ive read the other two in this trilogy but still haven‘t got to this one despite having it on my shelves, must make time for it! 6mo
ju.ca.no @JillR I was so intrigued after the first two, I just had to keep going! It‘s wrapping some questions up, which I still had after the first two books as well! 6mo

batsy Very cool! 7mo
youneverarrived 😍😍 I read Life Before Man many years ago but I remember really liking it. 7mo
Leftcoastzen Wow!! Great covers! 7mo
merelybookish @erzascarletbookgasm This is some of her early fiction. I'm not sure it was ever as popular as her later novels. 7mo
merelybookish @youneverarrived Growing up in Canada, I disliked Atwood on principle because she felted forced on me. Now I'd like to go back and reread some of her older stuff with a less jaundiced eye. 🙃 7mo
readordierachel Ooh! Great finds! 7mo

With such wonderful sentences as “If apples were the Devil‘s only bait we‘d still be able to call our souls our own, but then the prick threw indoor plumbing into the bargain and we were doomed.” Atwood has turned everything on its head and forced the reader to see differently. Much to ponder in this short collection of short fictions.

bnp I enjoyed the whimsy/humor in this one. 9mo
Lcsmcat @bnp I could picture the twinkle in her eye as I read some of these. 9mo

I started these stories this morning, where Atwood flips everything inside out and backwards. Loving them!
