GET READY for THE TESTAMENTS, the highly anticipated SEQUEL, by reading the BESTSELLING DYSTOPIAN NOVEL

NOW AN AWARD-WINNING TV SERIES STARRING ELISABETH MOSS

Offred is a Handmaid in The Republic of Gilead, a religious totalitarian state in what was formerly known as the United States. She is placed in the household of The Commander, Fred Waterford – her assigned name, Offred, means ‘of Fred’. She has only one function: to breed. If Offred refuses to enter into sexual servitude to repopulate a devastated world, she will be hanged. Yet even a repressive state cannot eradicate hope and desire. As she recalls her pre-revolution life in flashbacks, Offred must navigate through the terrifying landscape of torture and persecution in the present day, and between two men upon which her future hangs.

Masterfully conceived and executed, this haunting vision of the future places Margaret Atwood at the forefront of dystopian fiction.

'As relevant today as it was when Atwood wrote it...no television event has hit such a nerve ...The Handmaid’s Tale is more relevant one year after the first season’ Guardian

'Don’t expect to be gripped by a more potent or involving drama this year' Telegraph

Product Description:

NOW A SMASH-HIT CHANNEL 4 TV SERIESThe 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.

Review:

"One of Atwood’s finest pieces of work serves as a great reminder of what humanity is capable of." (Hannah Dunn Red)

"Margaret Atwood is a wry and perceptive observer of society as well as an original storyteller" (Cecilia Heyes Psychologist)

"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" (Essence)

"This is a novel pervaded by violence, sex, terror, but also by contemplation, analysis and – occasionally – by hope... Atwood shockingly reveals what we could be capable of." (Elly McCausland Cherwell Newspaper)

"Compulsively readable" (Daily Telegraph)
