Payback – Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood is one of my favourite authors, so I had to pick up this non fiction collation of lectures she had given on the nature of debt.

Payback is not an economics book, but is instead a book looking at the human perception of debt and revenge as a form of debt as something which is owed. Atwood looks at a variety of fictional sources to illustrate this concept, focusing on Dickens’ work focusing on the impact debt has on the human condition.

Atwood has some fascinating insights into the nature of debt, and Payback is as well-written as the best of her fiction.
