I was going to give this book away to the winner of our Halloween challenge but the winner kindly decided that she wasn’t enough of a fan to take the autographed copy. She wanted it to go to a true Atwood fan. So we are giving it away to one of our lucky followers. Keep reading to find out more

  1. Ahhh! This is so cool!

    Atwood is one of the big reasons I’m in grad school right now, studying Canadian literature with a focus on apocalyptic fiction. Oryx and Crake has been one of my favourite books since I was 14 – and now I’m getting paid to study Survival, Cat’s Eye, and Surfacing. I’m about 40th in line to get The Heart Goes Last from my library.

    This giveaway is a great idea! Thanks!

  2. I’ve loved her since I read The Handmaid’s tale, aged 16. I gobbled up every novel she’d written up until that point straight after, and I’ve been reading her and feeling read by her ever since. In 1999, my local library service put together a publication for International Women’s Week. It was on the theme of Women Read Women. I wrote a piece for it about Margaret Atwood. I’m copying it here as my reason for why I want to win the book.

    “I like so many women authors. How is it possible to choose? Different authors for different things – one for escaping, one for thinking, one for existing in another time or place. If I had to choose one that manages to satisfy on all three counts, I would have to choose Margaret Atwood.
    How can you put a finger on what makes you like something? Margaret Atwood understands two things important in a novel – she understands how to use language to its fullest extent; she also understands what it is to be human. She mixes the two things well.
    She takes you on a journey. It’s not just about reading a story. It forces you to think about yourself, your own life, the lives of other people. Some of her stories are horrific, but then you get to thinking that somewhere someone could be living that horror. Some of her stories explore the bizarre. They open up to inspection how our minds work – how we internalise and externalise experience. She also spins a good yarn. So it can be just about reading a good story.
    Someone once said that music can exist on more than one level – it can be like wallpaper: there to look at while you do the washing up; or it can be something deeper, something that challenges the way you think. I think novels are the same. I think Margaret Atwood understands that. That’s why she is one of my favourite women authors.”

    I’m very jealous that you met her, Jen!

    I haven’t read her, heard a lot about her, and believe she can become one of my favourite authors. I’m jealous of not being able to win her book, but I totally believe that either Dessa or Mrs Hicks do deserve it more πŸ™‚ So good luck!
