I just discovered that Margaret Atwood is releasing a new book this year. This is quite exciting since the last major release was probably ‘The Blind Assassin’ back in 2000. The latest is called ‘The Year of the Flood‘ and it sounds a lot more sci-fi than previous works. It resembles, and I assume, carries on from ‘Oryx and Crake’ (which is still on my TBR pile). I don’t know when it’ll be released in Australia though.
Virago has also given Atwood’s back catalogued a make over. What do you think of the new covers? They don’t really appeal to me, to be honest. I prefer the old, illustrated style.
