Legendary novelist, poet and essayist Margaret Atwood delivers a surprising look at the topic of debt. In her wide-ranging, entertaining and imaginative approach to the subject. Atwood proposes that debt is like air - something we take for granted until things go wrong. And then, while grasping for breath, we become very interested in it.
Payback is not about debt management or high finance. Rather, it is an investigation into the idea of debt as an ancient and central motif in religion, literature and the structure of human societies.
