Description

Margaret Atwood, the most prescient and admired author of her generation, presents an original audio adaptation of her latest leap into the comic sci-fi fantasy underground: Angel Catbird.

Atwood wrote this New York Times best-selling fantasy as an homage to the golden age of comic books and the radio hour thrillers she loved as a child - with a little 21st century spice!

Angel Catbird features an all-star, yowling, and wicked-punning Canadian cast - recorded live, in ensemble - led by a friendly feathered, cat-centric, and unapologetic superhero.

Our story: One dark night, young genetic engineer Strig Feleedus is cruelly mutated by his own experiment and merges with the DNA of a pussycat and an owl. What follows is an action-driven, witty, and pulp-inspired all-species revolution. Would you expect anything less?

The television series based on Margaret Atwood's novel The Handmaids' Tale garnered eight Emmys and two Golden Globes. She and her novels have won many literary prizes including the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the Man Booker Prize, the Giller Prize, the Franz Kafka Award, the German Friedenspreis, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Book Critics Circle. Angel Catbird is her first graphic novel and original audiobook adaptation.

Full cast of narrators includes Christo Graham, Kelly Van der Burg, Andrew Jackson, Mike Kash, Kyra Harper, John Cleland, Alegra Fulton, Lisa Repo Martel, Julie Lemieux, Dylan Trowbridge, Amy Matysio, David Ferry, and Margaret Atwood.
