Description

Margaret Atwood is one of the world's most distinguished authors, most famous for her 1985 classic The Handmaid's Tale. The dystopian novel, where women's reproductive rights are entirely stripped from them, recently inspired an Emmy-award winning TV adaptation. The much-anticipated sequel The Testaments is now out and she talks to Krishnan about its release, why fear still drives people and why we need to plant trillions more trees.
