Negotiating with the Dead

Negotiating with the Dead by Margaret Atwood

An interesting set of mediations on the writerly life.  The first one is most autobiographical, but the others deal with a lot of things.  Like the duality of the writer, who can communicate with the reader long after the flesh-and-blood being is in the grave.  The shocking moment when she ran across the sweet quote of the Everyman series in its context, which makes it much harsher.  The liminality of a writer's life.
