The Handmaid's Tale [9780099740919]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Now a major, critically-acclaimed TV series starring Elisabeth Moss and Joseph Fiennes.

The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs. Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of twenty-first century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit and astute perception.

Nominated for the Booker Prize.

'The Handmaid's Tale is both a superlative exercise in science fiction and a profoundly felt moral story' Angela Carter

'Out of narrative shadowed by terror, gleam sharp perceptions, brilliant intense images and sardonic wit' Independant

'The images of brilliant emptiness are one of the most striking aspects of this novel about totalitarian blindness... the effect is chilling' Sunday Times


AUTHOR: Margaret Atwood is Canada's most eminent novelist, poet and critic. Her books include The Edible Woman, Surfacing, Lady Oracle, Life Before Man, Bodily Harm, The Handmaid's Tale (winner of both the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Science Fiction and the Governor-General's Award, shortlisted for the Booker Prize and made in a major film).
