Curious Pursuits: Occasional Writing

by Margaret Atwood
£8.99   paperback  Time Warner Books (2006)

Curious Pursuits: Occasional Writing by Margaret Atwood '"Curious" describes both my habitual state of mind - a less kind word would be "nosy" - as well as the subject matter of some of these writings. Though perhaps "curious" as a word carries too light a weight: my curiosities are (I hope) not idle ones. "Passionate" might have been more accurate; however, it would have given a wrong impression, and disappointed a few men in rain coats.'
 
From book reviews to a journey in Afghanistan that sowed the seeds of The Handmaid's Tale, to obituaries of some of her great friends and writers - Angela Carter, Mordecai Richler and Carol Shields - Curious Pursuits is an insightful, thoughtful and revealing record of the life and times of this brilliant novelist and poet, from 1970 to the present.

"The glimpses into the writing process and her reflections on identity with delight fans of her novels, who will also recognise flashes of her mordant wit."
(The Times)
