Margaret Atwood is an international literary star. Through her thematically diverse and best-selling novels, she has anticipated, explored, and changed the popular preoccupations of our time. Though Atwood's subject matter may vary from book to book, the careful craft of her language (she is also a renowned poet) gives her considerable body of work a sensibility and resonance all its own. This rare writer whose books are adored by the public, acclaimed by the major critics, and studied on university and college campuses has written, The Edible Woman, Surfacing, Lady Oracle, The Handmaid's Tale, Cat's Eye, and Alias Grace. Her latest works are Oryx and Crake and The Tent.
