Type the word "Margaret" into Google and a glorious thing happens.
Literature trumps politics.
Atwood before Thatcher.
And rightfully so.
What has Margaret Thatcher ever done?
But Margaret ATWOOD?
Yes. NOW we are talking about something relevant.
Alias Grace. [Arguably, one of my fave-novels of all time]. The Blind Assassin. Cat's Eye.
Falklands crisis, Falklands SHMISIS!
Has Margaret Thatcher ever written anything one-millionth as good as The Handmaid's Tale?
Google is right.
Atwood is the only "Margaret" that matters!
Have a great Thursday!
