Margaret Atwood: “There’s four kinds of stories”

There’s four kinds of stories: extraordinary people in extraordinary times, extraordinary people in ordinary times, ordinary people in ordinary times, and ordinary people in extraordinary times.

The television series is turning that ordinary person into an extraordinary person. And that too has happened.
