Margaret Atwood released an essay collection earlier this month, so naturally she's been making the media rounds.

In advance of the release of Burning Questions: Essays and Occasional Pieces, 2004 to 2021, she talked with the Los Angeles Times about her fascination with The Wizard of Oz and some of the themes she found in it that make their way into her writing.

Atwood takes a much deeper dive into some of those themes on a recent episode of The Ezra Klein Show (which also has a transcript for those who prefer visual to audio).

For those unfamiliar with her work — she has twice won the Booker Prize, for The Blind Assassin and The Testaments (the sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale) and has also received the PEN Pinter Prize for her lifetime of work.
