" In the 1940s film The Red Shoes, a beautiful ballerina commits suicide when life forces her to choose between art and love. Margaret Atwood remembers being devastated by this movie as a young girl, but unlike many of her contemporaries, she came to reject its underlying message. How did Atwood, in those pre-feminist days, find the courage and confidence to believe in herself? In the Red Shoes, Award-winning biographer and poet Rosemary Sullivan explores the unfolding of a remarkable writer's career. She focuses on Atwood's formative years through to the late 1970s when the major elements of Atwood's life -- the publication of Surfacing, Power Politics, and The Edible Woman, the relationship with writer Graeme Gibson, the birth of a daughter, the focus on Canadian culture -- set in place." -- from the rear panel blurb.
