Robber Bride, Alias Grace, The Blind Assassin and the
MaddAddam trilogy. Her 1985 classic, The Handmaid's
Tale, went back into the bestseller charts with the election of

against the disempowerment of women, and with the 2017 release of
the award-winning Channel 4 TV series.
Atwood has won numerous awards including the Booker Prize, the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Imagination in Service to Society, the Franz Kafka Prize, the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade and the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2019 she was made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour for services to literature. She has also worked as a cartoonist, illustrator, librettist, playwright and puppeteer. She lives in Toronto, Canada.
