Author Margaret Atwood is known for fiction that hits upon uncomfortable truths.
And Morning Edition's Leila Fadel says that trend hasn't changed with Atwood's newly released collection, Old Babes in the Wood.
But this time, the truths come from personal, individual experience and not just broader societal trends — like the struggles of an aging couple.
You can hear more from Atwood about her inspirations for Old Babes in the Wood (and other fiction) on NPR's website, which also has a partial transcription of the conversation.
