By the author of The Handmaid’s Tale and Alias Grace

Curious Pursuits is a collection of personal essays, book reviews and articles from the fierce, ingenious mind of Margaret Atwood, ranging from 1970 to the present.

Atwood remembers moving to London as a starry-eyed teenager in 1964 and her first attempts at gardening; she discusses feminist utopias in fiction, and writes moving odes on beloved classics like Anne of Green Gables.

Personal life and fiction are shelved side by side in this revealing, insightful collection of Atwood’s non-fiction writing.

PRAISE FOR Curious Pursuits

‘A goldmine’ Sunday Times

‘Reminds one that Atwood is a superbly funny (as well as serious) writer; her wit is winningly relaxed and genial as well as sharp’ Spectator

‘The glimpses into the writing process and her reflections on identity will delight fans of her novels, who will also recognise flashes of her mordant wit’ Times
