NOW A SMASH-HIT CHANNEL 4 TV SERIES Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She has 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 explores a world in which oppression of women, and repression of the truth, have become justified. 'Compulsively readable' Daily Telegraph

Recensioner i media

"A fantastic, chilling story. And so powerfully feminist" "Compulsively readable" * Daily Telegraph * "Out of a narrative shadowed by terror, gleam sharp perceptions, brilliant intense images and sardonic wit" * Independent * "The Handmaid's Tale is both a superlative exercise in science fiction and a profoundly felt moral story" "Moving, vivid and terrifying. I only hope it's not prophetic" * The Listener *
