Margaret Atwood on The Blind Assassin
The novelist sits down with CBC interviewer, Evan Soloman:
By my age and stage you’re going to know a couple of things, and if you don’t know those things, where have you been all your life?
The essays Atwood talks about in this interview were published as Negotiating With the Dead: A Writer on Writing (2002). It was part of a series of lectures Atwood gave at the University of Cambridge in 2000.
The fifteen minute interview took place in 2000. I am indebted to Shawn Ewald for pointing me to this video.
