BOOK OF THE YEAR: Daily Telegraph, Evening Standard, Stylist, Sunday Times,
Financial Times, Guardian, The Times, Observer, Red 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.'
