BURNING QUESTIONS Essays and Occasional Pieces, 2004 to 2021

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Margaret Atwood and a Full Cast

Contemporary Culture • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Margaret Atwood and a full cast take turns performing Atwood's essays, which answer the "burning questions" she's been asked throughout her writing career. With incisive wit, she tackles a variety of topics and provides what she calls "attempts at answers." As topics range from the reasons we tell stories to climate change and even zombies, Atwood blends humor, irreverence, and insight into an engaging assembly of thoughtful essays. She narrates the introduction, along with a handful of the essays, which are the standouts of the collection. The inclusion of varied voice actors to perform the other essays makes this work seem both global and personal. Overall, the collection is performed beautifully. It's a must-hear for Atwood fans, along with those looking for a contemplative listening experience. J.M.M.
