“ The author of The Handmaid’s Tale and Oryx and Crake engagingly explores her lifelong relationship to science fiction, both as a reader and as a writer. ”


This book brings together her three heretofore unpublished Ellmann Lectures of 2010: "Flying Rabbits", which begins with Atwood's early rabbit superhero creations and goes on to speculate about masks, capes, weakling alter egos, and Things with Wings; "Burning Bushes", which follows her into Victorian other-lands and beyond; and "Dire Cartographies", which investigates utopias and dystopias. In Other Worlds also includes some of Atwood's key reviews and musings about the form, including her elucidation of the differences (as she sees them) between "science fiction" proper and "speculative fiction", as well as "sword and sorcery/fantasy" and "slipstream fiction". For all listeners who have loved The Handmaid's Tale, Oryx and Crake, and The Year of the Flood - not to mention Atwood's 100,000-plus Twitter followers - In Other Worlds is a must.

Margaret Atwood (Author, Narrator)
