Description
At a time when speculative fiction seems less and less far-fetched, the Booker Prize–winning author of MaddAddam and The Handmaid's Tale here examines the genre's relationship to the modern world. in a series of essays. A lifelong fan of what we have come to know as "science fiction," Margaret Atwood blends autobiographical reminiscences and keen analysis in "Flying Rabbits," which begins with her childhood creation of rabbit superheroes; "Burning Bushes," an appraisal of Victorian fantastic fiction; and "Dire Cartographies," a survey of literary utopias and dystopias. The book also includes some of Atwood's key reviews and thoughts about some of her own favorites of the art form, including Jonathan Swift, H. Rider Haggard, Ursula K. Le Guin, Aldous Huxley, and Marge Piercy.
