Why do people everywhere, in all cultures, tell stories?
How much of yourself can you give away without evaporating?
How can we live on our planet?
Is it true? And is it fair?
What do zombies have to do with authoritarianism?

In over fifty pieces Atwood aims her prodigious intellect and impish humour at
our world, and reports back to us on what she finds. The roller-coaster period
covered in the collection brought an end to the end of history, a financial crash,
the rise of Trump and a pandemic. From debt to tech, the climate crisis to
freedom; from when to dispense advice to the young (answer: only when
asked) to how to define granola, we have no better questioner of the many and
varied mysteries of our human universe.


Margaret Atwood is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry and critical essays. Her novels include Cat's Eye, The Robber Bride, Alias GraceThe Blind Assassin and the MaddAddam trilogy.

In 2020 she published Dearly, her first collection of poetry for a decade.

Atwood has won numerous awards including the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Imagination in Service to Society, the Franz Kafka Prize, the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize.
