Graeme Gibson and Margaret Atwood discuss writing

The Story


Graeme Gibson interviews the acclaimed writer Margaret Atwood for CBC radio's Anthology.  They discuss the novel as a writing form, her start in writing, writing in Canada, selfishness and the writing process.  When he asks what sustains her as a writer, her short answer is "my next book", but of course there is a more extensive answer than that.
