Owen Beattie

November 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This new edition of Frozen in Time expands on the history of early British Arctic exploration and places the tragically fated Franklin expedition in the context of other expeditions of the era, including those commanded by George Back and James Clark Ross, which also suffered unaccountable and devastating losses. The authors' research reveals an unexpected - and ironic - cause for the mystery illness that befell the explorers. Never-before-seen photographs from the exhumations, updated research results, additional forensic corroboration, and a new introduction by Margaret Atwood complete this fascinating account.

Waltzing Again: New & Selected Conversations with Margaret Atwood
Margaret Eleanor Atwood
0865381178
April 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
"I don't mind being 'interviewed' any more than I mind Viennese waltzing—that is, my response will depend on the agility and grace and attitude and intelligence of the other person. Some do it well, some clumsily, some step on your toes by accident, and some aim for them."—Margaret AtwoodThis gathering of 21 interviews with Margaret Atwood covers a broad spectrum of topics. Beginning with Graeme Gibson's "Dissecting the Way a Writer Works" (1972), the conversations provide a forum for Atwood to talk about her own work, her career as a writer, feminism, and Canadian cultural nationalism, and to refute the autobiographical fallacy. These conversations offer what Earl Ingersoll calls "a kind of 'biography' of Margaret Atwood—the only kind of biography she is likely to sanction." Enlivened by Atwood's...


Margaret Atwood: A Critical Companion
Nathalie Cooke
0313328064
October 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This book offers readers a concise introduction to Atwood's published novels and the central themes motivating her writing. The volume starts with an overview of the author's biography and the relationship of her writing to relevant literary traditions. Because Atwood is internationally renowned, many commentaries ignore the Canadian roots of her work. Cooke corrects this oversight by sketching the ways in which her work is shaped by, and has shaped, the Canadian literary scene. As the author of a full-length Atwood biography, Cooke is able to summarize feminist, Canadian nationalist, and postmodern influences on Atwood's work and on her development as a writer. The book offers close scrutiny of three illustrative works: Cat's Eye as the artist novel, The Handmaid's Tale as a dystopian novel, and The Blind Assassin as...

Book Description
Twenty-seven years in the making, Norman Sherry’s magisterial biography of Graham Greene captures the life and character of one of the twentieth century’s most important literary figures. The final, eagerly anticipated volume follows Greene, still an agent for the British government, from pre-Revolutionary Cuba and the Belgian Congo to adulterous interludes in Capri and Antibes. Based on unparalleled access to letters, diaries, and Greene himself, this book gives us the writer at the height of his fame, in the company of such literary luminaries as T. S. Eliot, Evelyn Waugh, Ian Fleming, and Ernest Hemingway. With insight and eloquence, Sherry reveals Greene’s obsessions, feelings, and craft, bringing to a close what Margaret Atwood has called "the definitive biography."

Good Bones and Simple Murders
Margaret Atwood
0385471106
December 1994
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
This handsome volume combines two of Margaret Atwood's most playful books--Good Bones and Murder in the Dark--resulting in an athletically clever series of tiny fictions, prose poems, and essays that, in small, witty steps, deconstruct everything from sexual politics to the very act of writing itself. Ranging from a tongue-in-cheek appreciation of "Women's Novels" and an embittered, self-sacrificing confessional by Chicken Little to a powerful series of variations on John McCrae's "In Flanders Fields," Good Bones and Simple Murders will surprise casual Atwood fans who are accustomed to the broad intensity of her novels or the seriousness of much of her poetry.

Many of the weaker pieces in this collection now feel dated, but this is hardly Atwood's fault; scores of lesser writers worked the brief essay-fiction to death in...
