A book of fifty lucid, urgent poems from internationally acclaimed, award-winning, bestselling author Margaret Atwood.

In The Door, Margaret Atwood investigates the mysterious writing of poetry itself as well as the passage of time and our shared sense of mortality. The Door ranges in tone from lyric to ironic to meditative to prophetic, and touches on subjects both personal and political. Brave and compassionate, this collection interrogates the certainties that we build our lives on and reminds us once again of Atwood's unique accomplishments as one of the finest and most celebrated writers of our time.

Margaret Atwood, whose work has been published in more than forty-five countries, is the author of over fifty books, including fiction, poetry, critical essays, and graphic novels. In addition to The Handmaid’s Tale, now an award-winning television series, her works include Cat’s Eye, short-listed for the 1989 Booker Prize; Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy; The Blind Assassin, winner of the 2000 Booker Prize; The MaddAddam Trilogy; The Heart Goes Last; Hag-Seed; The Testaments, which won the Booker Prize and was long-listed for the Giller Prize; and the poetry collection Dearly. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, the Franz Kafka International Literary Prize, the PEN Center USA Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Los Angeles Times Innovator’s Award. In 2019 she was made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour in Great Britain for her services to literature. She lives in Toronto.

“There is a pleasing consistency in these poems, which are always written in fluent free verse, in robust, clear language. Atwood’s wit and humor are pervasive, and few of the poems end without an ironic twang…Magnificent.” — Guardian 

"The first book of poems in 12 years from the now world-famous Canadian author (The Handmaid's Tale) combines an older writer's reflections on aging with the dire warnings-political, environmental and moral-familiar from Atwood's recent fiction." — Publishers Weekly

“A master poet…[Atwood’s] poems are stirring in their clarity.”  — Minneapolis Star Tribune
