Margaret Atwood's dystopian masterpiece, The Handmaid's Tale, is a modern classic. Now she brings the iconic story to a dramatic conclusion in this riveting sequel.

More than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid's Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results.

Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third voice: a woman who wields power through the ruthless accumulation and deployment of secrets.

As Atwood unfolds The Testaments, she opens up the innermost workings of Gilead as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.

"Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in.' Margaret Atwood

"The literary event of the year.' Guardian

"A savage and beautiful novel, and it speaks to us today, all around the world, with particular conviction and power… The bar is set particularly high for Atwood and she soars over it' Peter Florence, Booker Prize Chair of Judges, Guardian


But the biggest name, with the year's biggest book, is Margaret Atwood: her Handmaid's Tale sequel The Testaments * Guardian * Spoiler discretion and a ferocious non-disclosure agreement prevent any description of who, how, why and even where. So this: it's terrifying and exhilarating One of the year's big novels will undoubtedly be Margaret Atwood's sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, The Testaments * The Times * Margaret Atwood has just done her own thing and now she is one of those authors who is helping to change the culture. I love her for her politics. When The Handmaid's Tale was published in 1985, it just seemed that that kind of theocracy and patriarchy she was depicting couldn't happen, the world was progressing, but look where we are * Sunday Times * For my money, the single most exciting publishing event of the year * Bookseller * One of the most eagerly awaited books of the year * Daily Express * The Handmaid's Tale fans, rejoice * You * We'll be poring over The Handmaid's Tale for the 100th time in readiness * Good Housekeeping * It will be one of the literary events of the year * Vogue * Clearly the Booker Prize judges got their hands on an early copy, and it looks like it'll most certainly will be worth the wait * UK Press Sydication *
