The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood (September 2017)

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood (September 2017)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 not that of the two men on which her future hangs.

Brilliantly conceived and excuted, this powerful vision of the future gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's irony, wit and astute perception.
