Summary
Margaret Atwood was born in 1939 in Ottawa and grew up in northern Ontario and Quebec. This internationally acclaimed author has achieved distinction as a poet and as a novelist and is the recipient of numerous awards and honorary degrees. She is the author of more than 50 volumes of poetry, children's literature, fiction, and nonfiction - and is perhaps best known for her novels The Edible Woman, The Handmaid's Tale, The Robber Bride, and The Blind Assassin. Her work has been published in more than 40 languages, including Farsi, Japanese, Turkish, Finnish, Korean, Icelandic, and Estonian. Yet she remains a most elusive literary figure. In this classic program - a condensed version of the documentary Margaret Atwood: Once in August - director Michael Rubbo travels to Atwood's island retreat to discover what shapes this celebrated Canadian writer's fiction and what motivates her characters
