In Burning Questions Atwood aims her constant curiosity and impish humour at our world and reports back to us on what she finds.

In it she seeks answers to Burning Questions such as:

  • Why do people everywhere, in all cultures, tell stories?
  • How can we live on our planet?
  • What do zombies have to do with authoritarianism?

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.


‘A wonderfully written insight into everything from zombies to the climate crisis’ Stylist

‘The mighty Margaret Atwood writes about everything from granola to Trump' The Times
