Negotiating with the Dead: A Writer on Writing by Margaret Eleanor Atwood
Margaret Atwood, bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale and The Blind Assassin, now turns a critical eye and examines the craft of writing. Looking back on her own childhood and writing career, Margaret Atwood examines the metaphors which writers of fiction and poetry have used to explain their activities, looking at what costumes they have assumed, what roles they have chosen to play. Atwood's wide reference to other writers, living and dead, is balanced by anecdotes from her own experiences, both in Canada and elsewhere. The lightness of her touch is offset by a seriousness about the purpose and the pleasures of writing, and by a deep familiarity with the myths and traditions of western literature. This memorable new book should be on every writer's bookshelf along with Stephen King's On Writing.
