"Margaret Atwood is rather beloved around the world for someone who has repeatedly forecast its eventual destruction and the grim dystopia that follows. The native Ontarian's works, such as The Handmaid's Tale and Oryx & Crake, put a scarily plausible spin on how technology, politics, and deeply human motivations might shape, and threaten, our future. (The multiple Booker Prize-winning author is also an accomplished poet, with 15 books of verse to her name.)
"When Margaret Atwood predicts where the winds of change are blowing, though, she does not rely on mere instinct or editorial savvy. With the recently released MaddAddam completing the trilogy she began with Oryx & Crake,, the author talks to Co.Create about her approach to building future worlds and why she looks to breakfast for inspiration when she does so."
