The long-awaited new novel from Margaret Atwood, The Year of the Flood is a brilliant visionary imagining of the future that calls to mind her classic novel The Handmaid’s Tale.

Adam One, the kindly leader of God’s Gardeners — a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion — has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have been spared: Ren, a young trapeze-dancer, locked inside a high-end sex club; and one of God’s Gardeners, Toby, who is barricaded inside a luxurious spa. Have others survived?

By turns dark, tender, violent, thoughtful, and witty, The Year of the Flood unfolds Toby’s and Ren’s stories during the years prior to their meeting again. The novel not only brilliantly reflects to us a world we recognize but poignantly reminds us of our enduring humanity.

Review:

'Atwood is funny and clever, such a good writer and real thinker ... The Year of the Flood isn’t prophecy, but it is eerily possible.' (The New York Times Book Review)

'A tour-de-force ... laced with Atwood's dry wit and her savage, credible invention.' (The Times)

'Everything she forms in words has substance and weight.' (The Daily Telegraph)

'Another stimulating dystopia from this always-provocative author, whose complex, deeply involving characters inhabit a bizarre yet frighteningly believable future.' (Kirkus Reviews)

'Atwood's mischievous, suspenseful, and sagacious dystopian novel follows the trajectory of current environmental debacles to a shattering possible conclusion with passionate concern and arch humor.' (Booklist)

Book Description:

* A major paperback from one of our great writers:following the first of her speculative fiction, ORYX AND CRAKE
