Margaret Atwood and…zippers.


From The Globe and Mail by Rosalind Porter

Fascinating interview with Margaret Atwood. They cover a great many aspects of publishing today.

“A whole section of society was very upset when zippers came in because they made it easier to seduce people in automobiles. You know, I think we’ve kind of adjusted to zippers by now. Just because you have a zipper doesn’t mean somebody has to unzip it … But you’re talking about e-books and e-readers and text in electronic form and the reading experience.”


I am salivating over a Key West Literary Seminar she will be attending next year…
