Margaret Atwood Reflecting on SciFi
Margaret Atwood, a favorite writer of mine speaks On Science Fiction. Tom Ashbrook interviewed her over at On Point.
She talks about science fiction, and the power of sci-fi to shape our engagement with the world. Poet and novelist Margaret Atwood has written some of the most hair-raising, dystopian tales of our time. Of apocalypse, wild social decay, women sent back into virtual slavery. Reality-bending, piercing views of the world and its future.
But in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Oryx and Crake” and more, she never embraced the label “science fiction.” Now Atwood’s going straight at science fiction, with an exploration and celebration of its extraordinary power to shape the way we see and engage the world.
