Canadian author Margaret Atwood

Meeting Margaret Atwood

Preparing to sit down with Margaret Atwood, one of the most famous authors in the Western world, I was only a little daunted when I read her view on such events : “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.”
