Margaret Atwood er en af Canadas største forfattere, og hendes værker er udgivet i over 45 lande på verdensplan. Atwood er født i Ottawa i 1939 og opvokset i Quebec, Ontario og Toronto, hvor hun har studeret både filosofi og litteratur. Hun har forsket og undervist i litteratur og engelsk på flere universiteter både i Canada og USA. Hendes utrolige viden om og talent inden for litteratur og filosofi afspejler sig også i hendes forfatterskab, som hun har vundet utallige priser for; blandt andet The Franz Kafka International Literary Prize, the PEN Center USA Lifetime Achievement Award og hædersprisen Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Bedst kendt er hendes roman Tjenderindens Fortælling, som også er et af hovedværkerne i Margaret Atwoods forfatterskab. Den moderne klassisker udkom første gang i 1985, og i 2017 adapterede Bruce Miller historien til den storslåede og prisvindende tv-serie “The Handmaid’s Tale”. Efterfølgende har Atwoods bøger opnået en renæssance og er blevet genudgivet på adskillige sprog, hvilket de bestemt også fortjener. Det har også givet forfatteren anledning til at skrive Gileads Døtre, der er den længe ventede forsættelse til Tjenderindens Fortælling.
I alt har Atwood udgivet mere end 50 værker, og hendes forfatterskab spænder bredt fra fiktion, lyrik og graphic novels til kritiske artikler og anmeldelser, der blandt andet er udgivet i anerkendte tidsskrifter som The National Post, The Washington Post, New York Times Book Review og The Harvard Educational Review.

    "Kære læsere. Alt, hvad I nogen sinde har spurgt mig om Gilead og dets opbygning, er brugt som inspiration til denne bog. Eller næsten alt. Resten er inspireret af den verden, vi lever i." - Margaret Atwood I denne selvstændige fortsættelse til Tjenerindens fortælling svarer den anerkendte forfatter Margaret Atwood på de spørgsmål, som har forundret og pint læsere i årtier. Da bildøren smækkede i på sidste side i Tjenerindens fortælling, anede læserne ikke, hvad det betød for Offreds fremtid - frihed, fængsel eller død. Med Gileads døtre er ventetiden endelig forbi. Her samler Margaret Atwood tråden op, femten år efter at Offred trådte ud i det ukendte, med vidnesbyrd fra tre kvinder inde fra Gilead. Margaret Atwood (f. 1939) er canadisk forfatter, litteraturkritiker og miljøaktivist. Atwood oplever i disse år fornyet opmærksomhed internationalt og nævnes som kandidat til Nobelprisen i litteratur.

    The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness.

    Af forfatteren til bestselleren TJENERINDENS FORTÆLLING og bogen bag Netflix-serien ALIAS GRACE, som får premiere til november. I 1843 idømmes sekstenårige Grace Marks livsvarigt fængsel for at være medskyldig i mordet på sin arbejdsgiver og dennes husholderske. Grace kan intet huske fra dagen, hvor mordene fandt sted, og mange er af den opfattelse, at hun er ond eller ligefrem sindssyg. Dr. Simon Jordan, specialist i mentale lidelser, opsøger Grace i fængslet, hvor hun fortæller ham sin historie, og han forsøger at hjælpe hende. ALIAS GRACE er baseret på virkelige hændelser og er en gribende historie om usle livsvilkår i Irland og udvandringen til Canada samt en fortælling om den usynlige grænse mellem bevidsthed og ubevidsthed. "Suverænt. Atwoods blanding af fakta og fiktion er enestående." - Jyllands-Posten "Sproglig kraftfuld og psykologisk fængslende." - Berlingske Tidende ?Ganske enkelt en skøn læseoplevelse.? - Politiken

    Tony, Charis og Roz er tre meget forskellige kvinder, der mødes til frokost én gang om måneden. Omdrejningspunktet for deres venskab er mindet om deres nu afdøde rivalinde Zenia, der ikke formåede at føle hverken empati, skyld eller skam, og som manipulerede sig vej ind i deres liv, stjal deres mænd én efter én - og siden forsvandt.Men en dag under frokosten træder den smukke, charmerende - og lyslevende Zenia ind på restauranten, på jagt efter mere.Røverbruden handler om kvinder og om dynamikkerne kvinder imellem. Atwood sætter tingene på spidsen og i perspektiv uden nogen form for politisk korrekthed. Det er både tankevækkende, tidløst og underholdende.?"En genialt tænkt og hudløs ærlig beskrivelse af kvinder, når de er bedst - men nok i højere grad værst." - Alt for Damerne"I Røverbruden spiller Atwood på alle sit talents strenge." - Jyllands-Posten"Humor og ironi drejer fortællingen i retning af det groteske, men uden at sætte den grundige, uddybende persontegning over styr." - Politiken

    In this funny, erudite, endlessly curious, uncannily prescient collection of essays cultural icon Margaret Atwood asks:- Why do people everywhere, in all cultures, tell stories?- How much of yourself can you give away without evaporating?- How can we live on our planet?- Is it true? And is it fair?- What do zombies have to do with authoritarianism?In over fifty pieces Atwood aims her prodigious intellect and impish humour at our world, and reports back to us on what she finds. The roller-coaster period covered in the collection brought an end to the end of history, a financial crash, the rise of Trump and a pandemic. From debt to tech, the climate crisis to freedom; from when to dispense advice to the young (answer: only when asked) to how to define granola, we have no better questioner of the many and varied mysteries of our human universe.'Brilliant and funny' Joan Didion'She's taken our times and made us wise to them' Ali Smith'All over the reading world, the history books are being opened to the next blank page and Atwood's name is written at the top of it' Anne Enright, Guardian

A man, once named Jimmy, lives in a tree, wrapped in old bedsheets, now calls himself Snowman. The voice of Oryx, the woman he loved, teasingly haunts him. And the green-eyed Children of Crake are, for some reason, his responsibility. *Praise for Oryx and Crake:'In Jimmy, Atwood has created a great character: a tragic-comic artist of the future, part buffoon, part Orpheus. An adman who's a sad man; a jealous lover who's in perpetual mourning; a fantasist who can only remember the past' -INDEPENDENT'Gripping and remarkably imagined' -LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS

    For Penelope, wife of Odysseus, maintaining a kingdom while her husband was off fighting the Trojan war was not a simple business. Already aggrieved that he had been lured away due to the shocking behaviour of her beautiful cousin Helen, Penelope must bring up her wayward son, face down scandalous rumours and keep over a hundred lustful, greedy and bloodthirsty suitors at bay...And then, when Odysseus finally returns and slaughters the murderous suitors, he brutally hangs Penelope's twelve beloved maids. What were his motives? And what was Penelope really up to? Critically acclaimed when it was first published as part of Canongate's Myth series, and following a very successful adaptation by the RSC, this new edition of The Penelopiad sees Margaret Atwood give Penelope a modern and witty voice to tell her side of the story, and set the record straight for good.

    Felix Phillips er på toppen af sin karriere som kunstnerisk leder af Makeshiweg Theatre Festival. Hans teaterstykker har vakt både begejstring og røre, og nu skal han i gang med sin mest spektakulære opsætning til dato: William Shakespeares Stormen. Men efter et uforudset forræderi må han i stedet se sig forvist til en faldefærdig rønne på landet. Her hjemsøges han af mindet om sin døde datter – og planlægger hævn over dem, der har forrådt ham. Efter tolv år i eksil byder chancen sig. Felix får et job som teaterlærer i et nærliggende fængsel, og endelig kan hans vragede mesterværk blive til virkelighed. Snart er Felix, hans skuespillere og hans publikum viklet ind i en omsiggribende og fængslende opsætning af Shakespeares ultimative skuespil om hævn og overnaturlige kræfter. Men vil hævnen komme, og vil Stormen slippe Felix fri igen? I HEKSEYNGEL, Margaret Atwoods version af William Shakespeares Stormen, er øen blevet et fængsel, men stormen raser stadig. "Sproget fylder, der er humor, kærlighed, drama og menneskelig dybde på højt niveau. Alle figurer er solide og passer som fod i hose til fortællingen. Jeg har grinet, haft en klump halsen, og i det hele taget bare været til stede i dette finurlige univers.(..) Det her, er en af den slags bøger, der bare skal med på efterårets mustread liste." Bognørden, 5 stjerner ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ”At fremragende forfattere også kan skrive videre på [Shakespeares] historier, så de rammer nutidens læser i både hjerte og hjerne, er dette romanprojekt et enestående vidnesbyrd om.” Jyllands-Posten, 5 stjerner ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ”Som læser har man en usædvanlig morsom og tragisk oplevelse i vente.” Litteratursiden ”Margaret Atwood løser opgaven på fornemmeste vis, og Hekseyngel er efter min mening lidt af en genistreg.” Weekendavisen "Med denne roman viser Atwood endnu en gang sit værd og cementerer sin status som en af vor tids største forfattere, så der er ingen undskyldning: Kom i gang med at læse Hekseyngel med det samme."

    I sin nye digtsamling Inderligt, som er Margaret Atwoods første digtsamling i mere end ti år, skriver Atwood om emner som kærlighed, tab, tidens fylde, naturens væsen og - zombier. Hendes nye digte er meget personlige i tonen, men bevæger sig vidt omkring i en stor emnekreds. I digt efter digt kaster hun sin enestående fantasi og sit altid vågne og skarpe blik på det landskab et levet liv udgør.Mange læsere vil være bekendt med Margaret Atwoods romaner - ikke mindst hendes fænomenale bestsellere Tjenerindens fortælling og Gileads døtre - og hun har helt fra starten af sin karriere været en af Canadas mest fremtrædende digtere. Og hun er en af de meget få forfattere, der både mestrer prosa og lyrik. Denne digtsamling er et betagende værk til alle hendes mange læsere. Digtene er oversat af den danske forfatter Caroline Albertine Minor.

    Winner of the Man Booker PrizeBy the author of The Handmaid's Tale and Alias GraceLaura Chase's older sister Iris, married at eighteen to a politically prominent industrialist but now poor and eighty-two, is living in Port Ticonderoga, a town dominated by their once-prosperous family before the First War. While coping with her unreliable body, Iris reflects on her far from exemplary life, in particular the events surrounding her sister's tragic death. Chief among these was the publication of The Blind Assassin, a novel which earned the dead Laura Chase not only notoriety but also a devoted cult following. Sexually explicit for its time, The Blind Assassin describes a risky affair in the turbulent thirties between a wealthy young woman and a man on the run. During their secret meetings in rented rooms, the lovers concoct a pulp fantasy set on Planet Zycron. As the invented story twists through love and sacrifice and betrayal, so does the real one; while events in both move closer to war and catastrophe. By turns lyrical, outrageous, formidable, compelling and funny, this is a novel filled with deep humour and dark drama.

    This beautiful edition of Margaret Atwood's seminal work of speculative fiction features a leatherette cover, gilt edging, and ribbon marker-a perfect gift for book lovers and fans of the Hulu series.The Handmaid's Tale is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its image and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The Handmaid's Tale is funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and a tour de force.

    The novel that put the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale on the literary map Margaret Atwood's first novel is both a scathingly funny satire of consumerism and a heady exploration of emotional cannibalism. Marian McAlpin is an "abnormally normal" young woman, according to her friends. A recent university graduate, she crafts consumer surveys for a market research firm, maintains an uneasy truce between her flighty roommate and their prudish landlady, and goes to parties with her solidly dependable boyfriend, Peter. But after Peter proposes marriage, things take a strange turn. Suddenly empathizing with the steak in a restaurant, Marian finds she is unable to eat meat. As the days go by, her feeling of solidarity extends to other categories of food, until there is almost nothing left that she can bring herself to consume. Those around her fail to notice Marian's growing alienation-until it culminates in an act of resistance that is as startling as it is imaginative. Marked by blazingly surreal humor and a colorful cast of eccentric characters, The Edible Woman is a groundbreaking work of fiction.
