One of Canada's most decorated authors, Margaret Atwood, contemplates some very dark things in her latest novel, MaddAddam. The final part in a trilogy which also included Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood, MaddAddam inhabits a post-plague world where the few surviving humans need to find their way.
Atwood has also been commissioned to adapt The Tempest, the last play Shakespeare ever wrote. Clearly Atwood is going to have a lot to talk about in the red chair.
