The Gentlewoman 20 – Margaret Atwood | The writer of great intelligence and optimism, Margaret Atwood is the face of the 20th issue, for autumn and winter 2019. Inside, the 79-year-old nature-lover, equal rights campaigner and author of 64 books sets out a reassuring roadmap for the future, interviewed on the eve of the publication of her long-awaited novel The Testaments.
Alongside Margaret is the epic American artist Kara Walker, mesmerising actor Julia Garner, everyone’s favourite TV presenter Claudia Winkleman, the founder of Extinction Rebellion Gail Bradbrook and the sensational pop star Charlotte Adigéry.
