Laurie Brown interviews Margaret Atwood on the occasion of the world premiere of The Penelopiad at the National Arts Centre. Margaret Atwood is an international literary star. In her thematically diverse and best-selling novels, she has anticipated, explored—and even changed—the popular preoccupations of our time. Writing about issues on both a personal and worldly scale with a knife-edge precision, Atwood has been called, by The Sunday Times, "one of the most inventive, enthralling and accomplished authors writing in English."
