Selina (literatelibrarian) lol. love the comments.
I don"t know about being a 'lover of Atwood'...after all, I'm not a man..I don't know that much about her personal life but I am sure she is married. ;-)

Sharon Sorry badly expressed .... For those that enjoy reading her books and her interviews, articles and comments...which I do and have a good thirty years.

Selina (literatelibrarian) its a good article I like to learn a bit more about her upbringing. I liked Cat's Eye the best ..she's very dark though I don't know if many ppl can handle what she writes. Certainly she has a way with words.

I wish I have the opportunity to listen to her in a conference! Her books need to be translated to spanish so my country can invite her to give speeches all around my country and leave her footprint in it. I love her novels! She writes amazing, super interesting and there are no words to describe her work.. she is simply amazing!

Linda | 1 comments Many (if not all) of Atwood's books are translated into Spanish. To find them, just search 'margaret atwood in spanish'

My best research is Amazon ....I use it to look books up. Next Google and or Wiki....see what has been translated into Spanish then go from there. If you look at MA on Goodreads you may IMO have trouble browsing through so many or specifying your search. I cannot make it work myself...but it must!?!

Marcy (Marshein) I thought with these Q&A groups the author would answer questions...no?

I have read the whole series. I recently finished MaddAddam, and liked it the least of the 3 books. I'm going to re-read the other two, which I loved, soon.

Wende | 1 comments Hi Marcy,
I sort of felt the same way, in the sense that MadAddam was an ending of a story I wanted to keep going. Still, the writing was great, and like most of Atwood's work, for me, takes a while to totally sink in. I think re-reading the series is going to be on my 2014 list.

Diane Gallagher | 1 comments I know that no one has posted here in two years, but I just found this group. I can't say how much Margaret Atwood impacted my life. I discovered her when I was in the last two years of high school in the 70s. I read everything of hers that I could get my hands on. I learned from her and from Erica Jong what it meant to be a strong woman and a feminist. Lessons I have never forgotten and lessons that I taught my own daughter, now 23. I am so proud that she is a woman who has no trouble calling herself a feminist. Thanks, Margaret! For and from both of us.
