Food in Margaret Atwood’s Speculative Fiction

    Volume authored by Katarína Labudová and published by Palgrave -- 20. nov. 2022

    We are happy to announce the publication of Katarína Labudová’s book, in which she shows that food has special relevance in Margaret Atwood’s six novels (The Handmaid’s Tale and The Testaments, the Maddaddam trilogy, and The Heart Goes Last) and that characters’ hunger, limited food choices, culinary creativity and eating rituals are central to Atwood’s depictions of hostile environments. Dr Labudová also links food to hierarchy, dominance and oppression in these novels … and much more. Enjoy the book!
