Seriously, how can you not love Margaret Atwood? Watch as she explains, in the first trailer for Angel Catbird, with her usual stoic eloquence, things like: ‘He can understand both sides, and has moments of decisions such as: Do I save this baby bird? Or do I eat this baby bird? Am I cat? Am I a human being? Am I an owl?” In the video, we also learn that this is a personal project for the Canadian author, who has been a longtime lover of cats and birds. On the premise of the book, Atwood says: “How do you do a project that takes into account our fondness for cats but also our fondness for birds and the necessity of preserving their numbers?” Her answer seems to be Angel Catbird, which hits shelves this fall.
