margaret atwood

Because she's a brilliant writer.
Because she's prolific and yet so diverse.
Because she has written some brilliant books about the subject of writing such as Negotiating with the dead.
Because she made "speculative" futuristic/sci-fi books (which I usually hate) such as The Handmaid's Tale and Oryx and Crake completely compelling.
Because she's going to publish her worst reviews on her website (there's hope for all of us, then).

Because she's passionate about the environment and donated her Booker prize money to worthwhile causes.

Because she's not afraid to voice her opinion.
