  1. Margaret Atwood: The resurgence of The Handmaid’s Tale | Saturday Morning, 9:12 am on 22 April 2017 | Radio New Zealand

    Margaret Atwood is Canada’s most eminent novelist, poet and critic. She became world-famous with her book The Handmaid’s Tale, winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Science Fiction, shortlisted for the Booker Prize and made into a major film. Despite the fact Tale has never been out of print since it was first published in 1985, it has just reappeared on best-seller lists; many believe its dystopian vision - of women subjugated in a fictional US that’s become a fundamentalist theocracy - is a cautionary tale about Trump’s America. The book is about to be serialised for television, in an adaptation starring Elisabeth Moss. A trailer for this series can be seen here.’s-tale

Also on the docket: sexy John Adams, the LongPen, and analogies about Lost.
